Diving Emergency Management Provider Programme
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 programme 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 courses:
- Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries
- First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries
- Automated External Difibrillators (AEDs) for Scuba Diving
- Advanced Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries
After completing the skill and knowledge development portions of this program, the students then bring everything together in a composite scenario.
Recommended Minimum Days of Training:
Knowledge and skill development = two days (one day using online knowledge development)
The time needed to teach the course varies depending on several factors including the number of students and their ability to process the educational components of the program.
Course participants must complete the DAN DEMP component examinations with a minimum passing score of 80% on each exam. The instructor will review the examinations with each participant to ensure 100% understanding of the material.
Recertification is required every 24 months.
