This is a course to learn how to provide oxygen for an ill or injured diver. The entire course takes place on land. Since problems with the transport of oxygen to the body tissues is a typical complication in diving related emergencies, it is recommended that all divers complete this course. The minimum age is 10. The course can be completed in a single day and is open to all divers (and in some cases even to non-divers).
A big part of the programme is reserved to improve your knowledge of processes that take place in the human body. It then continues with the technical aspects of the equipment that is used to provide oxygen. This is the preparation for the practical part of the course.
You start this course by downloading the book and reading it. After you have finished a chapter, you can test your knowledge by doing a small 10 question test. Bring your answers to your SCUBA C&P Instructor to have them corrected. Your instructor will then explain all missed answers to assure that your understanding of diving theory is adequate.
If you prefer to read your book on paper, then ask your instructor. The price for the paper version of this book is €11.90. If you cannot find a SCUBA C&P instructor in your area, then please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your instructor has more questionnaires available if you wish to practice more. To complete the theory part of the course, you will have to pass an exam under the supervision of your instructor. The minimum score for passing is 80%.
