Diving Emergency Management Provider
Learn the knowledge and skills from several courses into one single approach to dive emergency management.
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 program 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 course:
- Basic Life Support: CPR and First Aid
- Emergency Oxygen for Scuba Diving Injuries
- Neurological Assessment
- First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries
After completing the skill and knowledge development portions of this program, the students then bring everything together in a composite scenario.
Recommended Minimum Hours of Training
Knowledge and skill development= 2 days (1 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 percent on each exam. The instructor will review the examinations with each participant to ensure 100 percent understanding of the material.
Recertification is required every 24 months.
