Emergency Oxygen Provider Diving Course Equipment

For this course, your PADI instructor will be the one to provide for the emergency oxygen units for training use.  After you have finished the training, your dive center or instructor can also help you find your own emergency oxygen unit that you can use afterwards.

Apart from the emergency oxygen unit, you need to have a disposable non-rebreather mask that will be used during practice sessions.  You can also ask your instructor about this mask.
