Student Membership Benefits

To cater specifically for these needs, DAN-SA has developed the student membership package. Now you can ensure your students are safe from their first breath as divers.

​Professional Indemnity

​I​​n our pursuit to find a solution to the local requirement for professional indemnity cover, DAN-SA has been informed that we are not able to obtain such insurance, from any overseas insurance company, until this has been approved, in advance, by the local financial services board authorities.

We would like to inform divers to make sure that any insurance product that they wish to purchase comes through a duly licensed local insurance company (or an associated broker), that is a registered financial services provider. It is the local insurance company’s responsibility to apply for and obtain this permission. 

We, as DAN-SA, do not wish to dissuade anyone from using any insurance products of their choice; our interest is simply to ensure effective cover for them in the event of a diving emergency or a liability claim.
