OMSAC club room hosted the DAN first aid and BLS training and workshop last week. 9 Candidates partook in the fun and discussions. We had some extra things to play with like the “act fast” choking kit, where you could actually do the proper hitting on the back and procedure for getting something out of a person’s throat. Guy Thomas from DAN Europe was our trainer. Morne Christou assisted and also gave us more details about the upgrading of DANSA services.
I am now able to teach the DAN first aid and BLS (basic life support), with Alex an instructor of all the DAN courses and also able to teach instructors.
So you do not have any excuse not to be first aid trained or even joining DAN.
You can also use the BLS and DAN first aid for your rescue diver certification.
