Thankfully, most of us will never be involved in an emergency situation where someone's well being is at stake. However, as divers we learn that with the incredibles experinces we get to have, comes an increased amount of risk compared to our daily lives. We also learn that even by eliminating as much of this risk as possible, we cannot completely remove it. Being prepared with the tools and know-how, to act accordingly in an emergency situation, greatly increases your confidence no matter where you are - diving or not.
Here are Blue Planet we are proud to offer CPR/First Aid courses from two very well respected training organizations:
Focused on training the lay rescuer, the Emergency First Response approach to training builds confidence in lay rescuers and increases their willingness to respond when faced with a medical emergency by teaching them the skills they need in a non-stressful learning environment. Participants are also given as much practice as necessary to master and retain these skills.
DAN Education fulfills a key element of the DAN Mission by educating the diving public and the medical profession on the appropriate care for divers injured in dive accidents. This education takes on many forms, disseminating information on topics related to dive safety through articles, reports, seminars, lectures and training programs.
