DAN Courses

These classes are taught upon request by Jeff Sutton.  If dates scheduled do not work, please let us know.

Neurological Assessment ($75 books included)  Next available class, June 2, Tuesday, 4 PM at the shop.

Approximately two-thirds of divers with decompression illness experience damage to their nervous system. These signs are often vague and can go unrecognized by the diver, causing the symptoms to be dismissed as insignificant or not dive related and delaying treatment.

Additionally, stroke is the leading cause of long-term disability. Recognizing signs and symptoms of a possible stroke and activating EMS can minimize lasting effects.

The Neurological Assessment course focuses on how to obtain essential information about an individual involved in a dive emergency or suspected of having a stroke and what information to relay to emergency medical services.

 

First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries ($75 books included).  Next available class, June 23, Tuesday, 4 PM at the shop.

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. Learn how to recognize and minimize these injuries.

The First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries course is designed to provide divers with knowledge regarding specific types of marine life injuries and the general first aid treatment for those injuries. This course introduces students to identification of potentially hazardous marine life as well as how to avoid injuries.

This program also provides an excellent opportunity for experienced divers and instructors to continue their education.

 

Emergency Oxygen for Scuba Diving Injuries ($90 books included).  Next available class, July 28, Tuesday, 4 PM at the shop.

The DAN Emergency Oxygen for Scuba Diving Injuries course is designed to train and educate interested individuals in the techniques of using oxygen as first aid for a suspected dive injury. In addition, this course will introduce the fundamentals of recognizing diving injury warning signs, response and management. This program also provides an excellent opportunity for experienced divers and instructors to continue their education.

 

Basic Life Support: CPR and First Aid ($55 books included)

The DAN Basic Life Support: CPR and First Aid (BLS: CPR&FA) course offers entry-level training in providing basic life support to adults with life-threatening injuries while activating emergency medical services.
Basic life support includes one-rescuer cardiopulmonary resuscitation, use of an automatic external defibrillator (AED) and additional skills such as controlling bleeding and caring for a choking person or a person in shock. The first aid portion of this program includes key skills such as conducting illness and injury assessments, bandaging, splinting and performing emergency moves.
This program meets 2010 International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation and American Heart Association guidelines on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiac Care.

 

Diving Emergency Management Provider ($235 books included)

A dive emergency is rarely a single event. More often than not, separate small problems compound to create a larger emergency.

Divers interested in understanding first aid care for dive emergencies can take the Diving Emergency Management Provider (DEMP) course from a DAN Instructor. This program integrates the knowledge and skills from several DAN training programs into a single course — at a significant time savings without sacrificing any skills.

The DEMP course includes the knowledge and skill development from each of the following DAN course:

 

CPR Health-Care Provider with First Aid ($75 books included)

Whether you are diving a few hours from shore or days from civilization, dive accidents frequently require more advanced levels of care than are offered by traditional or entry-level CPR programs. CPR Health-Care Provider with First Aid (CPR HCP) teaches advanced techniques of basic life support. This course is ideal for dive professionals and divers interested in understanding the next level of resuscitation techniques. It is designed to be applicable to the diving market — featuring scenes and scenarios pertinent to diving situations — as well as the nondiving healthcare market. CPR HCP also includes basic life support skills for adults, children and infants. This program meets 2010 International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation and American Heart Association guidelines on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiac Care.
