DAN First Aid training is a response to society’s need to help all victims in situations where there is no immediate threat to life. These are the events you will encounter most often in your life. Adequate wound care, transport of the victim and other rescue efforts will ensure that the victim receives proper care, pain relief and does not deteriorate until proper treatment is initiated.
Who is DAN First Aid training aimed at
The DAN First Aid (secondary care) course is designed for rescuers who have already acquired Basic Life Support (BLS) skills and want to significantly extend their knowledge of first aid for injured people in situations where there is no longer an immediate threat to life.
Knowledge of first aid (secondary care) is extremely important for each of us. The course is designed for all responsible and informed individuals.
Why be a DAN rescuer
First aid secondary care allows you to comprehensively care for an injured person in the event of an injury or illness that is not immediately life-threatening. Prepared by Divers Alert Network, the program covers the most common situations in normal life that you are sure to encounter. Knowing how to proceed and how to act will build your confidence and positively impact the actions you take.
To participate in this training, a candidate rescuer must have completed a course in basic CPR techniques from any recognized organization (e.g. DAN BLS, PADI EFR, SSI React Right, etc.). DAN BLS – Basic Life Support training is recommended. The training must be up to date, which means it is no more than 24 months old.
