The Divers Alert Network (DAN) is an international non-profit foundation which helps in difficulty and conducts scientific research aimed at bringing about greater safety to diving. As a result DAN offers a variety of first aid training programs related to diver emergency ranging from DAN Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries to DAN Medical Oxygen Rebreather (MO2R). As a result of divers becoming more aware of the advantages of oxygen first aid we are offering a number of course over the next few weeks.

The courses can be run as a standalone course, although Basic Life Support Training is a pre-requisite for the courses as well as basic Oxygen training in order to complete the Advanced Oxygen Course. Or there is the option to complete a combined course of either Diving First Responder (O2, Adv O2, AED & HMLI) or Diving Emergency Management Provider (O2, AED & HMLI) click here for more info.
