Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries
Cost: $120.00

As a recreational diver, you can receive training to provide vital first aid that can make a difference to a scuba diver with decompression illness. The DAN Oxygen Provider Course provides entry-level training in the recognition and management of possible diving-related injuries using emergency oxygen first aid.

Oxygen First Aid for Aquatic Emergencies
Cost: $120.00

This course trains non-divers and professional rescuers (such as lifeguards) to recognize near-drowning / submersion incidents and other aquatic medical emergencies and to provide basic life support including the use of oxygen first aid.

Advanced Oxygen First Aid For Scuba Diving Injuries
Cost: $120.00

This advanced-level program is designed to train existing DAN Oxygen Providers to use the MTV-100 or a Bag Valve Mask while providing care for a non-breathing injured diver.

First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries
Cost: $120.00

Serious hazardous marine life injuries are rare, but most divers experience minor discomfort from unintentional encounters with fire coral, jellyfish and other marine creatures. This course teaches divers to minimize these injuries and reduce diver discomfort and pain.

Basic Life Support For Dive Professionals
Cost: $150.00

The remote nature of dive accidents, whether a few hours from shore or days from civilization, frequently requires more advanced levels of care than are offered by traditional or entry-level CPR programs.

On Site Neurological Assessment for Divers
Cost: $120.00

Learn how to conduct a neurological assessment on a potentially injured diver in this course. The information gained in this assessment can help convince a diver of the need for oxygen first aid, and help a dive physician determine the proper treatment.

Automated External Defibrilators for Scuba Diving
Cost: $120.00

More than 10 percent of all dive fatalities are actually caused by cardiovascular disease, according to DAN dive accident and fatality statistics. This course teaches divers and other interested parties to provide care for sudden cardiac arrest including the use of an automated external defibrillator (AEDs).

Dive Accident First Aid for Non-Divers
Cost: $150.00

This program is designed for nondivers and teaches them how to recognize the warning signs of decompression illness and help provide care for a diver involved in a dive emergency.

Diving First Aid for Professional Divers
Cost: $350.00

This program is intended for divers who are required to have first aid, CPR and oxygen first aid training prior to diving as part of their job responsibilities. It combines the key skills of CPR and first aid training with the DAN Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries, AEDs for Scuba Diving and First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries courses.

Diving Medicine for Divers
Cost: $120.00

When you want to know more than just basic first aid techniques, this program is for you. This modular program includes sections on fitness to dive, safety planning and basic physical examinations.

Diving Emergency Management Provider Program
Cost: $395.00

It is a rare event when a dive emergency is a single event. More often than not, separate small problems compound to create a larger problem.

Divers and dive professionals interested in understanding first aid care for dive emergencies can now take the Diving Emergency Management Provider course from a DAN Instructor. This single program integrates the knowledge and skills from several DAN Training Programs into a single eight-hour day.

The Diving Emergency Management Provider course includes:

  • Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries
  • Advanced Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries
  • First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries
  • Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) for Scuba Diving

 After reviewing the skills and knowledge development portions of this program, the students then participate in an integrated scenario where they get the opportunity to bring together all of the skills they learned in each of the segments into a single scenario.
