BE PREPARED BEFORE YOUR DIVE
Enroll in DAN’s Free Online Prepared Diver Course
The human body wasn’t designed to breathe underwater, but with the right equipment and proper training, almost anyone can become an underwater explorer. Unfortunately, to err is human and accidents happen; but they don’t have to happen to you.
The five most common scuba diving accidents are preventable. That’s why Divers Alert Network (DAN) created the Prepared Diver course.
Most divers don’t plan to run out of air or make an uncontrolled ascent, but there are common, preventable mistakes that lead up to these emergencies. DAN’s Prepared Diver course is based upon real-life dive accidents and uses engaging video modules to help divers learn more about the science of diving so they can make informed decisions and minimise risk.
Prepared Diver Modules
Each video-based module covers one of the five main triggers of dive incidents.
At DAN, we believe a smarter diver is a safer diver. And when you’re 18 meters underwater, you want to be certain that you have the knowledge needed to explore safely. That’s why, for over 30 years, we have made it our mission to deliver extensive educational and dive safety resources to help you stay safe — both in and out of the water
