DAN Instructor Trainer

DAN Instructor Trainer Workshop (ITW)

THE PROGRAM

DAN Europe ITW's are organised by DAN Europe Training. Only Staff members and members of the DAN Europe Training committee can offer this Programme.

After completing a 3 day DAN Instructor Trainer Workshop, DAN Instructor Trainers can present the knowledge and skills development sessions of the Core Module the various course modules of the IQC.

During the ITW, candidates will be trained and prepared to run an IQC by themselves and promote diving safety and the DAN courses.
