DAN Courses

What is DAN?

DAN stands for Divers Alert Network , often referred to as 'diver's safety net'.

DAN was created in 1980 following the initiative of certain scientists and university professors of international standing, in the USA and in Italy, who had understood that the managing of a diving emergency requires a special knowledge, not commonly found as part of normal medical structures.

DAN's mission is that of operating and maintaining an international network of alarm centers, active 24 hours a day, guaranteeing, in the event of an emergency, specialized assistance, to any diver, anywhere in the world

Divers Alert Network is a not-for-profit organisation that provides emergency medical advice and assistance for underwater diving injuries, and underwrites a wide range of research, education and training programmes that promote safe diving.

Most divers know that the main treatment for all major diving injuries is the rapid use of oxygen. Based on that, we believe it is every divers responsibility to understand how to administer oxygen to an injured diver.

We offer a full range of DAN training courses. We can teach and guide you through the DFR (Diver First Responder) or alternatively you can select anyone of the four separate modules listed below - (O2 Provider, Advanced O2 Provider, AED or HMLI) and learn these as separate courses within their own right to suit your own training
