Diving Emergency Management, 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



Diving Emergency Management Provider Program

Divers and dive professionals interested in understanding first aid care for dive emergencies can now take this 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 course includes:

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

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.

DAN offers several dive-oriented first aid training programs. Because these courses are often taught independently, there is repetitive information and skills. The program allows DAN Instructors to offer an integrated program to train divers to learn the information and skills in DAN Training Programs, at a significant savings of time, but without sacrificing any skills.

Program Objective

Train divers to respond to dive emergencies in a single comprehensive package. This is not a new training program from DAN. Rather, it is an all-inclusive method of presenting and promoting DAN Training Programs.

Recommended Hours of Training

8 hours (6 hours without Advanced Oxygen Provider)
