Basic Life Support: CPR and First Aid
Everyone should be familiar with the signs and symptoms of life-threatening conditions. Students of this course learn to recognize these conditions and develop the skills to respond effectively. In addition to covering the basics of cardiovascular diseases, shock, choking and external bleeding, this course addresses additional circumstances that may require intervention from EMS.
CPR Health Care Provider with First Aid
Some dive incidents may require a team-based first-aid response when they occur in locations distant from emergency services. This course helps students develop the skills needed to provide basic life support techniques necessary for effective prolonged care and basic first aid.
Diving Emergency Management Provider
Dive accidents are rare, but they may require prompt, specific action. No single set of skills will meet all the various demands a diving accident may present. The Diving Emergency Management Provider (DEMP) program combines skills from four first-aid courses offered by your instructor to streamline and put into context the care that may be necessary.
This program meets the current recommendations from the October 2015 Guidelines Update for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care issued by the International Liaison Council on Resuscitation (ILCOR)/American Heart Association (AHA).
Diving First Aid for Professional Divers
The Diving First Aid for Professional Divers (DFA Pro) course is aimed at commercial, professional, scientific divers and aquarium staff and volunteers and meets the 2015 Guidelines for Resuscitation & OSHA.
The course comprises information from the Emergency Oxygen for Scuba Diving Injuries, Neurological Assessment, First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries, CPR HCP, and bloodborne pathogens.
Emergency Oxygen for SCUBA Diving Injuries
Scuba diving injuries are rare, and symptoms are often subtle, but recognizing problems and initiating appropriate action can speed an injured diver’s recovery and minimize lasting effects. Oxygen first aid is one of the initial responses for diving injuries.
First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries
Injuries caused by hazardous marine life are rare, but entering the marine environment always risks being stung, bitten, or cut. Water enthusiasts of all kinds can benefit from knowing how to recognize and avoid hazardous marine life and respond to injuries.
Neurological injuries are the leading cause of long-term disability. The basic assessments taught in this course aid in recognizing key signs of neurological injuries such as stroke and decompression illness (DCI). Early recognition can lead to faster response time and improved long-term outcomes.
Prepared Diver is an informative and engaging video-based program for students and new divers that details proper diving behaviors and safe diving procedures. A complement to the entry-level certification, this course offers insight into the science behind fundamental diving skills and highlights best practices vital to making good diving decisions.
