DAN Courses

Be prepared and become a better dive buddy with basic life support skills under your weight belt. That is the basis behind DAN first aid courses as well as being engaging and fun. We believe at Oceans unlimited and Go Pro Costa Rica that every diver needs basic life support skills and that every dive boat and/or dive site should be equipped with, at minimum, a DAN First Aid Kit & Oxygen Unit, so these courses are an important part of our curriculum. We have a variety of courses available that can be integrated into any of the Go Pro packages

 

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.
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.
