The O2 admin course is a one-day course that teaches you how to recognise the signs and symptoms of decompression illness, and treat them by using pure O2. (The course is also allegedly a great way to cure a hangover as you get to use O2 yourself, but I couldn’t possibly comment on that!)
Any qualified Ocean Diver or above can attend, and as well as getting a sticker for your logbook, it also allows you to sign off Dive Leader Theory lectures DT2 to DT7.
As per Dom’s email, there are a few O2 admin courses being run around the regions close to Hellfins. You can book on these through the links below.
However, if none of those suit, we can also run a course in-branch. If this interests you, then please could you let me know and we can look to arrange one. I’m thinking we could do this one day from late January to early March.
Please let me know if you’re interested and also your availability.
Regional oxygen admin courses being run near Hellfins:
25th January – London Region:
08 February – South East Region
12th January – Eastern Region

Merry Christmas Hellfins!
To recover from a mince pie induced stupor, I find that there is nothing better than planning my diving for next year.
