This Analgesic Gases and Oxygen Provider Level 2 (VTQ) course is designed to provide each learner with the theoretical competency on how to best administer Analgesic gases and Oxygen correctly and safely, like Entonox and Nitronox. The certificate is valid for 3 years and an annual refresher is recommended.

This course covers the basics of how to deliver oxygen in first aid emergencies. Oxygen within first aid by trained rescuers can provide an effective way of saving a life or just promoting recovery. In this course, you will learn the basics of how to assemble, use and disassemble an oxygen kit. Oxygen is a simple skill but there are safety concerns each learner needs to be aware of.

Added to the course also is the use of bag valve masks (BVM) to deliver breaths without direct mouth contact as well as being able to deliver the breaths using 100% oxygen. To meet the latest guidelines, pulse oximetry is also covered in the course. By completing this course each learner will gain knowledge and confidence on how to handle, store and administer the Oxygen and Analgesic gases.

This course is ideal to train to use Oxygen equipment if you work in the wind turbine and offshore wind turbine industries.

This training is part of our First Responder on Scene blended online course, which forms part of a regulated qualification.

This qualification and most of the other ProTrainings qualifications are Endorsed by TQUK to show our commitment to extra levels of compliance and quality assurance.

All our first aid courses fully meet the latest UK and European Resuscitation Council Guidelines 2021 as per the HSE requirements.
