Basic Life Support: CPR and First Aid
The Basic Life Support (BLS):CPR and First Aid programme is designed to provide course participants with foundational knowledge and to teach skills needed to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and other lifesaving skills.

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

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 dive accident may present. The Diving Emergency Management Provider (DEMP) programme combines skills from four first aid courses offered by your instructor to streamline and put into context the care that may be necessary.
CPR Health-Care Provider with First Aid
The primary focus of the CPR Health-care Provider with First Aid (CPR:HCP) course is to develop cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) skills at the health-care provider (HCP) level. This includes one- and two-person CPR for adults, children and infants.
Diving First Aid for Professional Divers
Divers Alert Network® (DAN®) developed the Diving First Aid for Professional Divers (DFA Pro) course specifically for individuals who dive as part of their job duties and who may have to comply with health and safety regulations or other institutional requirements.
