DAN e-Learning programs

PROGRAM SPOTLIGHT
DAN E LEARNING
As your dive safety association, DAN® is committed to sharing our accumulated knowledge and offering our courses to as many divers as possible. When it comes to first-aid and safety education and training, our goal is to make the information easily accessible and maximize your in-person instructional time. Whether you are a diver, dive instructor, health-care provider or someone who simply wants to improve your skills, there is a DAN e-learning course full of valuable information for you.

Our first-aid courses cover the latest standards and underlying science of basic life support, emergency oxygen administration, neurological assessment, dive emergency management and hazardous marine life injuries. Students may be scientific divers, public safety divers or people who simply enjoy diving, swimming, hiking or various other sports and activities.

After completing the online portion of a course, students practice the knowledge section in a hands-on environment with a DAN Instructor. With students finishing the theory portion through e-learning, instructors will have more time to create a simulation of an incident to test practical application in the most authentic environment possible (outside of an actual emergency).

The Diving First Aid for Professional Divers (DFA Pro) course is designed for commercial, professional and scientific divers as well as aquarium staff and volunteers. The e-learning portion of this course combines elements of many of our other first-aid courses but goes into greater detail. DFA Pro, which is rigorous enough to meet the U.S. Coast Guard’s requirements for captain and mate licenses, is widely used by organizations such as Sea World, the Smithsonian Institution and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

In addition to first-aid courses, DAN offers the Prepared Diver Program, which focuses on fundamental diving skills to prevent the most common causes of dive injuries. From a computer, tablet or phone, students learn about setting appropriate limits, being aware of their air, paying attention to their ears, controlling buoyancy, ascending safely and properly preparing for a dive. New divers, experienced divers wanting to improve their skills and dive instructors looking for a resource for their students can all benefit from the information.

DAN is also in the process of adapting our large collection of online seminars and video lectures to an e-learning format so we can increase the availability of talks on topics such as remote management of decompression sickness (DCS), medical fitness for diving, and emergency action plans.
