Oceanaddicts are delighted to announce that we are now a DAN Partner and in association with James Stockdale DAN Instructor, we are hosting a DAN ONE course, on board Embarr, on Thursday 28th July. The ONE course is a combination of OFA (Oxygen) & NEU (Neuro).

The cost of the course is €260 and includes all materials, certification and lunch. If interested you can contact Anne at phone 087-7903211 or James at phone 085-7103330

OFA (Oxygen)
Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries represents entry-level training to educate the general diving (and qualified non-diving) public to better recognise possible dive-related injuries and to provide emergency oxygen first aid while activating the local emergency medical services (EMS) and / or arranging for evacuation to the nearest available medical facility. 
Course Objective
The course is designed to train and educate the general diving public in the techniques of using oxygen as first aid for a suspected dive injury. In addition, this course will introduce novice divers to the fundamentals of recognizing diving injury signs and symptoms, response and management. This program also provides an excellent opportunity for experienced divers and instructors to continue their education.
The DAN Oxygen Provider course is not designed to train lay persons to provide oxygen to the general public. While the medical standards and equipment are the same regarding the emergency use of oxygen for both divers and non-divers, the DAN Oxygen Provider course does not prepare individuals to respond to the ill or injured member of the general public by using emergency oxygen.

NEU (Neuro)
This course, On-Site Neurological Assessment for Divers, is an advanced-level program that provides additional training for those individuals who have successfully completed the DAN Oxygen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries course within the past two years (24 months).
Course Objective
The DAN On-Site Neurological Assessment for Divers Provider (“DAN On-Site Neuro Provider”) program is designed to:
Refresh the knowledge of the warning signs of a dive emergency
Identify when it is appropriate to conduct an on-site neurological assessment
Conduct an on-site neurological assessment
