The Advanced Open Water Diver Course will give you experience in five separate specialty diving areas – Underwater Navigation, Deep Diving, Wreck Diving, Drift Diving and Underwater Naturalist. The experience you gain during the Advanced course puts you on the right track towards professional-level training.

Emergency First Response Primary Care (CPR) teaches you how to deal with emergencies that are immediately life threatening. You will focus on primary care through a combination of knowledge development, skill development and realistic scenario practice to make sure you have the knowledge, understanding and confidence to use your skills. You may also participate in an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) training component, learn how to help a conscious choking adult and have an emergency oxygen use orientation.
Secondary Care (first aid) covers injuries or illnesses that are not immediately life threatening or when local EMS is unavailable or delayed. You focus on secondary assessment and first aid through knowledge development, skill development and realistic scenario practice.

When a dive accident occurs, multiple things happen. Separate small problems can compound to create a larger problem. DAN’s Diving Emergency Management Provider (DEMP) program prepares you to handle the kinds of multifaceted accidents that may occur. It’s an easy and fast way to take four of DAN’s core first-aid courses in one program; Emergency Oxygen, First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries, Basic Life support and First Aid and Neurological Assessment.

The PADI Rescue Diver Course will teach you self-rescue, first-aid, accident prevention, rescue techniques and how to confidently manage a diving accident scene should the need arise. Rescue divers are self-assured and competent divers ready for the next level of career training.

The PADI Divemaster Course is the first level of professional training in the PADI system and your first step towards a career in the dive industry. Using the most up-to-date materials, this course will teach you how to assist a PADI Instructor with a wide variety of PADI courses.
You will also become familiar with all the programs which may be conducted by PADI Divemasters and learn how to supervise and conduct diving activities, both shore and boat-based. An important function of the course is to develop your water skills and dive theory knowledge in preparation for Instructor training.

After successfully completing the PADI Divemaster Course, your first priority should be to take the Emergency First Response Instructor Course. This important course will provide you with the necessary training to conduct the Emergency First Response Course for divers and non-divers. A number of PADI courses require students to have CPR/First Aid training. Becoming a EFR Instructor enables you to offer your students fully inclusive courses, so they will not have to go to another Divemaster or Instructor for the CPR/First Aid training they need. This new course offers unlimited marketing options.

PADI Oxygen First Aid Instructor Course

The PADI Oxygen First Aid Instructor course perfectly complements the EFR Instructor Course. As an Oxygen First Aid Instructor you will be able to offer this important training to all your students so that they will be prepared to offer assistance in the event of a diving accident. Being qualified to teach this course will enhance your diving resume, especially if you are planning to work at a resort dive operation or on a live-aboard dive boat.
