The Alert Diver app is free to download, and the digital subscription is automatically included with DAN Membership. Nonmembers and those who live outside the DAN America territory are also able to purchase issues through the app.

Incident Reporting: DAN has established an online dive safety reporting system, designed to enable divers to anonymously report nonfatal accidents and the details surrounding the event. The data gathered from this database will help identify trends and establish baselines to further research efforts and enhance the safety of the sport. To report an incident, visit

Online quizzes: These interactive learning tools cover important dive safety topics such as DCI, hazardous marine life, hand signals and more. Explore to test your knowledge.

DAN Education has also completely redesigned the core provider courses featuring comprehensive content updates including the 2010 Guidelines for Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiac Care and CPR administration.

DAN Emergency Oxygen for Scuba Diving Injuries: DAN pioneered the course more than 20 years ago, and now presents the most current information, equipping divers with the skills necessary to recognize and manage diving emergencies requiring oxygen first aid.

Basic Life Support: CPR and First Aid: Learn essential up-to-date first aid skills for illness and injury assessments and basic wound care including single-rescuer adult-only CPR, AED, airway and choking management.

Hazardous Marine Life: At some point, most divers experience an unintentional brush with fire coral, jellyfish or other hazardous marine life. Be trained to identify and effectively manage these injuries.

Neurological Assessment: Learn the skills you need to establish a critical information baseline to assist first aid providers in making informed decisions about care in the field for both diving injuries and possible strokes. A course designed for divers and nondivers alike.

All provider courses are available in English and Spanish in a variety of formats. To learn more about these programs, call DAN Education at 1-800-446-2671 x.555 or email

DAN is here for you whenever you need us, whether it’s for information, training or emergency assistance.
