This course is aimed at anyone who requires a course in oxygen for first aid. The certificate is valid for 3 years and a recommended annual refresher. This course covers the basics of how to deliver oxygen in first aid emergencies. Oxygen within first aid by trained rescuers can provide an effective way of saving a life or just promoting recovery. On this course, you will learn the basics of how to assemble, use and disassemble an oxygen kit. Oxygen is a simple skill but there are safety concerns, and these are also covered in full on the course.

Added to the course also is the use of bag valve masks (BVM) to deliver breaths without direct mouth contact as well as being able to deliver the breaths using 100% oxygen. To meet the latest guidelines, pulse oximetry is also covered in the course.

This course is ideal to train to use Oxygen equipment if you work in the wind turbine and offshore wind turbine industries.

All our first aid courses fully meet the latest UK and European Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2015 as per the HSE requirements.
