Specialized for diving emergencies East Coast Divers React Right course is something every diver should be trained in. Three of the most important aspects of a successful in water rescue, especially for a scuba diver, are the ability to provide proper first aid, basic life support, and oxygen administration. Our course teaches you these three important subjects with an in-water emergency in mind. Our diver and aquatic-focused program was designed by scuba groups to integrate into diver training programs seamlessly. Often a first aid course is merely a general application of techniques. Our first aid course focuses on the world of aquatic emergencies to give you the most specialized training available in the world of diving. We give real examples of real situations and explain to you how the environment will change your behavior as the person providing support.

Oxygen Administration Stand-Alone Course

If you already maintain a current CPR, First aid and AED certification through another facility or agency we can also teach the Oxygen Administration program as a stand-alone course. This situation sometimes arises when a First Aid, CPR, AED certification is obtained through work or other means. Most home and office-based programs do not include an Oxygen Admin section since it really is specialized to aquatic emergencies. In this case, we still recommend taking the full program to cross certify since ours is built for divers but it is not absolutely necessary. Dive professionals are required to stay current in First Aid, CPR, AED and Oxygen Admin and it is HIGHLY recommended for Technical divers. Home and office-based programs do meet these requirements and recommendations.

Our stand-alone Oxygen Admin course run for one (1) to one and a half  (1.5) hours. You can register for this program, or the full program, here as well.
