First Aid, CPR, AED and O2 Provider Course

First aid, CPR and oxygen administration are vital skills for any diver. They are an important prerequisite for Rescue Diver and leadership training.

Learning these critical abilities takes no more than a couple hours of online self-study plus a morning, afternoon or evening of hands-on skill practice. Your certification is good for two years. You renew by retaking the course.

Our online training materials and certification are provided by First Response Training International (FRTI), the emergency response division of International Training (ITI). ITI is the parent company for:

  • Scuba Diving International (SDI)
  • Technical Diving International (TDI)
  • Emergency Response Diving International (ERDI)
  • Performance Freediving International (PFI)

FRTI courses meet or exceed OSHA and ILCOR standards and are recognized by the United States Coast Guard. ITI has used its considerable expertise in the field of diver training to create a suite of emergency response courses students tell us are better than anything else currently available.

If you are an SDI, TDI, ERDI or PFI Instructor, rather than simply take this course, you will want to become an FRTI Instructor. This is not only an excellent way to keep your skills up to date, you will be able to pass these abilities on to your own students while adding to your teaching income. Learn more…


The only prerequisite for this program is that participants be at least 18 years old (10 with parental permission). You needn’t hold any form of diver certification. As a practical consideration, you must be able to get down on your knees to perform compressions and ventilations on the CPR manikins.
