Expedition Divers - DAN Courses Provider
DAN's vision is to be the most recognised and trusted organisation worldwide in the fields
of diver safety and emergency services, health, research, and education by its members,
instructors, supporters and diving community at large.
DAN (Divers Alert Network) Training Programs
DAN Training courses teach the first aid steps to care for an injured diver and interact with medical professionals. These courses help you gain a better understanding of dive medicine and how to respond to a dive emergency within your scope of practice. They all provide diving medical education using a language that can be easily understood by everybody.

The Basic Life Support course, represents entry-level training designed to educate persons in providing Basic Life Support techniques to adult victims with life threatening injuries, while activating the local medical services.
Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
The DAN Automated External Defibrillator (AED) course, is an entry-level course designed to educate participants to better recognise the warning signs of Sudden Cardiac Arrest and administer first aid using Basic Life Support and an Automated External Defibrillator pending the arrival of local medical services.
First Aid (FA)
First Aid course to educate persons already with a Primary Assessment / CPR / BLS certification in providing First Aid to victims with non-immediately life threatening injuries.

In a real situation, First Aid skills are the next step after providing effective BLS.
Hazardous Marine Life Injuries (HMLI)
The DAN course “First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries”, teaches participants how to recognise dangerous marine life forms, to recognise wounds inflicted by dangerous marine life forms, to administer first aid treatment to a patient who has suffered injury by dangerous marine life forms and to avoid receiving an injury from dangerous marine life forms.
On-site Neurological Assessment for Divers (NEURO)
The DAN “On-Site Neurological Assessment for Divers” course is designed to teach participants how to perform a neurological examination on a diver suffering from a suspected diving injury. The information gathered during the examination can help to convince the diver of the importance of oxygen first aid treatment and can also help qualified medical professionals to determine the course of treatment.
Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries (OFA)
The DAN Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries, or Scuba Oxygen Provider, is designed to train participants to recognise possible dive-related injuries and to provide emergency oxygen first aid pending the arrival of local medical services.

It is designed to train Oxygen Providers to use a positive pressure valve (as the MTV-100) and/or a bag-valve-mask (BVM).
Expedition Divers - DAN Combination Courses
DAN (Divers Alert Network) courses are designed to be taught independently. This can lead to repetition when more than one course is followed within a short time-span. For this reason we offer integrated course packages, enabling participants to cover all the required material in less time than would otherwise be possible.
