One reason many people learn to dive is to interact with and observe marine life; however, this is the same reason some are afraid to scuba dive. Fortunately, injuries caused by hazardous marine life are rare and usually the result of a diver’s actions. Any time we enter the marine environment there is always the risk of being stung, bitten or cut by aquatic animals. These injuries are usually mild and require only simple interventions by first-aid providers. On rare occasions more involved care is necessary.

The DAN First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries course is an entry-level training program that teaches participants how to identify potentially hazardous marine life, how to provide first aid when injuries occur and techniques for avoidance.

Successful completion of the DAN First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries course includes demonstration of skill competency and passing a written knowledge assessment. Upon completion, you will receive a provider card indicating that you have been trained in basic first aid for hazardous life injuries.
