DAN First-Aid Programs

Help prepare divers to respond to real world emergencies.
Whether it is being on the scene of an accident or witnessing a health-related emergency, most people will be involved in a crisis situation at some point in their lives. Are you prepared to help? Do you have the skills to respond quickly?

Developed by medical experts, DAN’s courses are easy to understand and designed to provide you with the skills and confidence you need to respond in emergency situations. DAN first aid courses prepare divers to manage injuries related to scuba diving. All courses meet the ILCOR and AHA 2015 guidelines. The training can also extend to other environments. Isn’t it worth a few hours one evening or weekend to learn the skills that could save a life?

Diver Education
The first step in being prepared to handle a diving emergency is education. DAN courses teach you the first aid steps to care for an injured diver and interact with medical professionals.

Health-Care Providers
Whether you are a medic in the field or a physician, DAN Education has programs to help you gain a better understanding of dive medicine and how to respond to a dive emergency within your scope of practice.
