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

Why choose a DAN course?

DAN courses are developed by a team of Medical and Educational Specialists.

Some courses are specifically developed for divers or life guards, while others such as the BLS and First Aid course are aimed at a wider audience.
We also developed specific programs for medical professionals to help them gain a better understanding of dive medicine and how to respond to a dive emergency.
