First Aid-CPR/AED & O2 Classes


The specific date, time, and location of the each course will

be announced in November of the preceding year.


Scuba diving injuries are rare but when they occur being able to recognize the problem and initiate appropriate action can save the diver's life, speed the recovery, and minimize any lasting effects.  The proper care for these injuries requires a basic knowledge of first aid, CPR/AED (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation / Automatic External Defibrillator), and oxygen delivery for scuba diving injuries.

All MAST members are encouraged to take both the American Red Cross Adult First Aid-CPR/AED course nd the DAN Emergency Oxygen for Scuba Diving Injuries course.  MAST offers these courses every year to its members for a nominal fee.
