Why would I follow a DAN Course ?

DAN is specialised in first aid courses for Divers and Non-Divers.

DAN is specialised in first aid courses and the DAN courses are internationally recognised by several organisations. Following a DAN Course means following a high qualitative first aid course which prepares you to act and react in diving emergencies. Before you receive your provider certificate, you will be made confident with first aid materials and techniques and will be able to provide first aid in the best possible way.

All DAN Europe courses follow the latest ERC first aid guideline and are recognised by leading medical organisations

The variety is the difference !

Within the DAN programs you are not only touching different programs (like with some other organisations) you will be prepared intensively. Only due to this drill you will be in the position to react in a right way in a case of an Emergency.

Tropical Divers are offering on a regula base all below mentioned programs on provider level as well as on instructor level. For further information please click on the course symbols.
