Take the Challenge. Become a DAN Instructor !
Active Diving Instructors with an active CPR certificate can participate in a DAN IQC to get certified as DAN Instructor for one or more of the above mentioned courses. After the IQC they will be able to offer the DAN courses to their own students.
IThe DAN Instructor Qualification Course (IQC) trains and educates qualified scuba diving Instructors (minimum level SSI DiveMaster or PADIDiveMaster or higher) to plan, manage, conduct and promote dive safety through DAN Training Programs
- Basic Life Suport (BLS) - First Aid
- Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries,
- Advanced Oxygen First Aid,
- Automated External Defibrillator (AED) for Scuba Diving,
- First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries und
- Oxygen First Aid for Aquatic Emergencies
- On-Site Neurological Assessment for Divers
In addition, the course develops role-model teaching techniques in the use of first aid for suspected dive injuries. Instructor Candidates also have the opportunity to develop further knowledge in relation to the special considerations involved in providing emergency first aid.
The DAN IQC consists of seven modules. There is a core module that introduces DAN and the DAN Training philosophy. This core programme serves as the introduction for all other DAN Training programmes. The remaining programme modules represent each of the individual training courses offered by DAN.
Participants must be certified as Provider before they can be certified as Instructor for that kind of course.
For example, the DAN Oxygen Instructor must be certified as DAN Oxygen Provider before he can get certified as DAN Oxygen Instructor.
