The DAN Basic Life Support (BLS) course will not only train divers and non-divers to resuscitate an injured person with a circulatory arrest, but can also prevent a person from getting in that condition. External bleeding, choking and shock can lead to severe circulatory and respiratory problems. The DAN BLS course will prepare you to react in the correct way, when accidents happen.
DAN Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries course represents entry-level training designed to educate divers and interested non-divers (such as a charter boat captain) to recognise scuba diving injuries and to provide emergency oxygen first aid.
The DAN First Aid course represents training designed to educate persons with a CPR/BLS certification in providing First Aid to adult victims with non immediately life threatening injuries.
Although the course was designed to be taught together with the DAN BLS course, it can also be offered as extra module to those who already have a DAN BLS or other BLS certification, respecting ERC guidelines. In a real accident situation First Aid skills are the next step after providing effective BLS.
