DAN INSTRUCTOR COURSES

    Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries Course Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries Instructor Course
    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 Instructor Course Oxygen First Aid for Aquatic Emergencies Instructor Course
    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 Instructor Course Advanced Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries Instructor Course
    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 Instructor Course First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries Instructor Course
    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.
    Automatic External Defibrillators for Scuba Diving Instructor Course Automatic External Defibrillators for Scuba Diving Injuries Instructor Course
    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).
    Basic Life Support for Dive Professionals Instructor Course Basic Life Support for Dive Professionals Instructor Course
    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) Instructor Course Remote Emergency Medical Oxygen (REMO2) Instructor Course
    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.
    DAN INSTRUCTOR QUALIFICATION COURSES DAN INSTRUCTOR QUALIFICATION COURSES
    To become a DAN Instructor you must complete the Instructor Qualification Course (IQC). Instructor Candidates will complete a Core Module that offers more information about DAN and explains how to teach DAN programs. Candidates will then complete the course module for each DAN Training Program they are interested in teaching.

    Additional information DAN Instructors can use to teach their courses.
    Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries Course Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries Instructor Course

    DAN´s Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries Provider Course was designed to fill the void in oxygen first aid training available for the general diving public.

    This course represents entry level training designed to educate the general diving (and qualified non-diving) public in recognizing possible dive related injuries and providing emergency oxygen first aid while activating the local emergency medical services (EMS) and/or arranging for evacuation to the nearest available medical facility.

    In DAN´s most recent dive accident record, less than 33% of injured divers received emergency oxygen in the field. Few of those received oxygen concentrations approaching the recommended 100%. DAN and all major diving instructional agencies recommend that all divers be qualified to provide 100% oxygen in the field to those injured in a dive accident.

    Oxygen First Aid for Aquatic Emergencies Instructor Course Oxygen First Aid for Aquatic Emergencies Instructor Course

    Every year more than 4,000 Americans die from drowning and many more suffer from near-drowning events.

    According to the 1998 National Sporting Goods Association (NSGA) Annual Sports Participation Survey, 58.2 million Americans participated more than once in swimming during the year. The same study identified nearly 30 million people who participated in power boating, sailing, kayaking, rafting or canoeing.

    When swimmers and boaters have near-drowning accidents, water in their lungs keeps their lungs from working properly and they don't get an adequate amount of oxygen. This may cause secondary drowning; victims appear to survive an incident only to die at home a few hours later. Administering 100 percent oxygen first aid immediately after an accident improves the victim's survival chances.

    For nearly a decade, DAN has preached the benefits of providing oxygen to injured scuba divers. During that time more than 80,000 people worldwide have been trained in this first aid skill. In March of 1999, DAN Services, Inc., a wholly owned for-profit subsidiary of Divers Alert Network, launched the Oxygen First Aid for Aquatic Emergencies (Aquatics) program. Its goal is to extend the life-saving skills of oxygen first aid to people who live and play in and around water. Providing high concentrations of oxygen to near-drowning victims in the first few minutes after rescue can prevent serious or even fatal complications.

    Advanced Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries Instructor Course Advanced Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries Instructor Course

    This module, Advanced Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries, is an advanced-level program that provides additional training for those individuals who have successfully completed the DAN Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries course within the past year (12 months). It is designed to train DAN Oxygen Providers to use the MTV-100 or a Bag Valve Mask (BVM) while providing care for a non-breathing injured diver and activating the local emergency medical services (EMS) and / or arranging for evacuation to the nearest available medical facility.

    Rescue breathing with supplemental oxygen delivers upwards of 50 percent inspired oxygen when performed correctly. However, using an MTV-100 or Bag Valve Mask with oxygen can deliver nearly 100 percent inspired oxygen to a non-breathing injured diver.

    When supplemental oxygen is not available, a Bag Valve Mask can deliver 21 percent oxygen as compared to 16 percent with rescue breathing without supplemental oxygen. The MTV-100 does not work without an oxygen supply.

    This is not a stand-alone program. It is intended to train current DAN Oxygen Providers to administer oxygen using advanced-level skills.

    First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries Instructor Course First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries Instructor Course

    A diver surfaces from a dive in an area abundant with coral, removes his fins and finds redness, swelling and blisters just beginning to show on his left ankle. He also experiences a stinging sensation on the same ankle.

    A diver, following a dive to an area filled with marine life, notices a small bite pattern on his lower right leg and some stiffness; he also experiences difficulty swallowing, has a generalized weakness and a slight numbness in the area of the bite.

    A diver experiences pain, nausea and some swelling associated with a purple-and-black puncture wound in his left knee.

    The common thread from each of the three injuries is that they likely came from contact with some form of hazardous marine life. Given similar circumstances with you or a dive buddy, would you be able to appropriately treat each injury?

    Although serious hazardous marine life injuries are rare, most divers experience minor discomfort from unintentional encounters with fire coral, jellyfish and other marine creatures at some point in their dive careers. Knowing how to minimize these injuries helps you reduce diver discomfort and pain.

    The First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries program is designed to provide knowledge regarding specific types of marine creature injuries and the general first aid treatment for those injuries.

    Automatic External Defibrillators for Scuba Diving Instructor Course Automatic External Defibrillators for Scuba Diving Injuries Instructor Course

    This course represents entry-level training designed to educate the general diving (and qualified non-diving) public to better recognize the warning signs of Sudden Cardiac Arrest and administer first aid using Basic Life Support techniques and Automated External Defibrillators while activating the local emergency medical services, (EMS) and / or arranging for evacuation to the nearest appropriate medical facility.

    The mean age of divers who die each year in dive fatalities tracked by DAN is gradually increasing. It is now approximately 42 years of age. Divers are getting older, and older people are getting involved in diving.

    Of the 78 dive fatalities in the DAN 2001 Report on Decompression Illness, Diving Fatalities and Project Dive Exploration, based on 1999 fatalities, 7.7 percent of them were caused directly by heart disease. At the same time, heart disease was the direct cause of death for 26 percent of the fatalities involving divers over the age of 35.

    On top of that, 25 percent of divers involved in diving fatalities were also reported to be taking heart medications.

    Heart disease is a common problem. To ignore that it affects divers as much as it affects the general population does divers a disservice. When you consider that diving is often done from remote locations - on beaches or off of dive boats - that are far removed from emergency medical help, it is important to prepare for every emergency.

    Basic Life Support for Dive Professionals Instructor Course Basic Life Support for Dive Professionals Instructor Course

    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. DAN Instructors and Instructor Trainers will now be able to offer a healthcare provider-level basic life support program for their student and divers.

    Called Basic Life Support for Dive Professionals (BLSPRO), this program is ideal for dive professionals and divers interested in understanding professional-level resuscitation techniques. This program is designed to be applicable to the diving market, including scenes and scenarios from dive situations, as well as the non-diving/healthcare market.

    Coupled with DAN’s existing Training Programs and the new Advanced Oxygen First Aid program, DAN Instructors and Instructor Trainers will now be able to offer a complete diving emergency program.

    This program also addresses basic life support skills for adults, children and infants.

    Skills learned in this program that set it apart from lay-provider level CPR courses include:
    two-person CPR;
    ventilation using a bag valve mask;
    finger sweep;
    suctioning;
    cricoid pressure; and
    the technique for caring for an unconscious choking victim.

    Remote Emergency Medical Oxygen (REMO2) Instructor Course Remote Emergency Medical Oxygen (REMO2) Instructor Course

    You know the importance of oxygen as a first aid measure for decompression illness. But, what happens when you have more ocean than oxygen between you and advanced medical care?

    The DAN REMO2 system is an affordable way to extend the oxygen supply of your DAN oxygen unit. The system absorbs carbon dioxide from an injured diver's expired air and replaces the small amounts of oxygen the diver uses, allowing the diver to rebreathe the exhaled oxygen.

    The REMO2 system extends the duration of a standard oxygen Jumbo "D" cylinder up to six hours (an approximate six-fold increase). If you dive in remote areas, the DAN REMO2 system should be part of your safety plan. Easy to use, the system stows in a compact, durable Pelican® case.

    DAN INSTRUCTOR QUALIFICATION COURSES DAN INSTRUCTOR QUALIFICATION COURSES

    As a DAN Instructor, you can offer your students seven classes that will help make them safer divers. These classes are:

    Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries
    Oxygen First Aid for Aquatic Emergencies
    Advanced Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries
    First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries
    Automated External Defibrillators for Scuba Diving
    Basic Life Support for Dive Professionals
    Remote Emergency Medical Oxygen (REMO2)

    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 eight 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.
