02.03.18 DAN First aid Pro Class

Postby dabbott » Mon Jan 08, 2018 10:27 am

Hi Reefcheckers!

Bob Halem has once again generously offered to teach this class to any interested Reefchecker. The course will be held from 9am to 5pm at Diver Dan's in Santa Clara on Saturday Feb 3rd. The only charge will be $20 to cover some supplies and the DAN certification card. This is a huge bargain, and I want to thank Bob for teaching the class, and making our community that much safer.

DAN has changed the program so that completion of the online class is required for certification. Bob will need everyone's email address so that he can send you the link (no cost), so in addition to signing up here for the class, send Bob an email (bob@wescraft.com) so that he has your contact info.

Here is the description from the DAN website:

Diving First Aid for Professional Divers
Why Take This Course
People who dive as a part of their job or volunteer duties often need first-aid training to manage unique situations that may occur. DAN's Diving First Aid for Professional Divers (DFA Pro) course is designed for commercial, professional, aquarium and scientific divers, providing first-aid knowledge and skills specific to these work environments. It also provides rescue management skills for dive masters and dive instructors.
What You Will Learn
DFA Pro is comprised of information from the Emergency Oxygen for Scuba Diving Injuries, Neurological Assessment, First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries and CPR HCP courses. It meets U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidelines for workplace CPR and first aid.

You will learn about:
Anatomy, physiology, bloodborne pathogens
Decompression Illness and Oxygen First Aid
Response, assessment, and medical emergency management

You will develop the following skills:
