Diving Emergency Management Provider Program

DAN Instructors are scuba diving educators who want to offer dive safety programs to their students. To become a DAN Instructor, you must participate in a DAN Instructor Qualification Course (IQC).

The IQC follows a modular format. There is a Core Module and then a separate module representing each training program. You can take all nine modules as part of one course, or just take the Core Module and one course module - whatever you are interested in teaching. Later, as long as you remain a current and active DAN Instructor, you can take additional modules without retaking the Core Module. The Core Module is now available online in

Prerequisites for DAN Instructor Qualification Course:

  • DAN Member
  • Active scuba diving educator*
  • Current CPR Instructor
  • Documentation of First Aid training

DAN Training & Education Courses Offerings From 1877 SCUBA USA/SCUBA Learning Center

Continuing Education Units (CEUs) or Professional Development Units (PDUs) may be granted to diving leadership personnel for participating in some of the courses listed below as authorized by their respective training agency.

Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries
As a recreational diver, you can receive training to provide vital first aid that can make a difference to a scuba diver with decompression illness. The DAN Oxygen Provider Course provides entry-level training in the recognition and management of possible diving-related injuries using emergency oxygen first aid.

Oxygen First Aid for Aquatic Emergencies
This course trains non-divers and professional rescuers (such as lifeguards) to recognize near-drowning / submersion incidents and other aquatic medical emergencies and to provide basic life support including the use of oxygen first aid.

Advanced Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries
This advanced-level program is designed to train existing DAN Oxygen Providers to use the MTV-100 or a Bag Valve Mask while providing care for a non-breathing injured diver.

First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries
Serious hazardous marine life injuries are rare, but most divers experience minor discomfort from unintentional encounters with fire coral, jellyfish and other marine creatures. This course teaches divers to minimize these injuries and reduce diver discomfort and pain.

Automated External Defibrillators for Scuba Diving
More than 10 percent of all dive fatalities are actually caused by cardiovascular disease, according to DAN dive accident and fatality statistics. This course teaches divers and other interested parties to provide care for sudden cardiac arrest including the use of an automated external defibrillator (AEDs).

Automated External Defibrillators for Aquatic Emergencies
When a person drowns, they may or may not inhale water. They normally enter cardiac arrest because of the inability to breathe. This course teaches interested parties to provide care for cardiac arrest by using an automated external defibrillator (AED).

Basic Life Support for Dive Professionals
The remote nature of dive accidents, whether a few hours from shore or days from civilization, frequently requires more advanced levels of care than are offered by traditional or entry-level CPR programs.

Remote Emergency Medical Oxygen (REMO2™)
The DAN Remote Emergency Medical Oxygen (REMO2™) system module supplements the DAN Oxygen First Aid in Scuba Diving Injuries course. Based on medical closed-circuit oxygen rebreather technology, the REMO2™ device provides injured divers with high concentrations of emergency oxygen for extended periods. This training course instructs the Oxygen Provider in the use of DAN's new REMO2™ system.

On-Site Neurological Assessment for Divers
Learn how to conduct a neurological assessment on a potentially injured diver in this course. The information gained in this assessment can help convince a diver of the need for oxygen first aid, and help a dive physician determine the proper treatment.

Dive Accident First Aid for Non-Divers 
This program is designed for nondivers and teaches them how to recognize the warning signs of decompression illness and help provide care for a diver involved in a dive emergency.

Diving First Aid for Professional Divers 
This program is intended for divers who are required to have first aid, CPR and oxygen first aid training prior to diving as part of their job responsibilities. It combines the key skills of CPR and first aid training with the DAN Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries, AEDs for Scuba Diving and First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries courses.

Diving Emergency Management Provider Program
Learn the knowledge and skills from several courses into one single approach to dive emergency management.

Diving Emergency Specialist (DES) 
Learn about DAN’s new recognition program for divers who are interested in dive safety.

DAN DEMP & SCUBA RESCUE Series

This series goes beyond executing the rescue by combining DAN provider courses that address what to do after the rescue, before help arrives.  As part of the course you will tour a working Hyperbaric Chamber in an up-close presentation with a 1877ScubaUSA dive instructor.

BENEFITS OF THE D.E.M.P./RESCUE DIVER SERIES:

- Builds confidence
- Learn Self-Rescue Techniques
- Learn how to respond to problems underwater
- Diver First Aid
- CPR/Oxygen training for Diving Emergencies

Diving Emergency Management Provider Program

Divers and dive professionals interested in understanding first aid care for dive emergencies can now take the Diving Emergency Management Provider course. This single program integrates the knowledge and skills from several DAN Training Programs into a single course.

It is a rare event when a dive emergency is a single event. More often than not, separate small problems compound to create a larger problem.


The Diving Emergency Management Provider course includes:

  1. Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries
  2. Advanced Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries
  3. First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries
  4. Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) for Scuba Diving

The knowledge and skills from the DAN Advanced Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries module are optional in this program.

COURSE PREREQUISITES:
You must have current certification in CPR. (Ask about our CPR for DEMP special rate)
The eight-hour class can either be split up on two weeknights or
be completed over a weekend. See our schedule for days and times.

Successful Completion card is valid for 24 months.
