Why Take This Course?

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.
