DAN Student Membership is a program that offers entry-level divers in the DAN America region limited insurance coverage for the duration of their entry-level training. It provides up to $20,000 of recompression treatment insurance at no cost to the diver or the instructors who teach them. The program is about protecting new divers and providing peace of mind to students and instructors alike.
The program is open to any entry-level diver and any certified instructor teaching in the DAN America region. Students under the age of 18 need consent from a parent or guardian to enroll.
The program is free to entry-level students and certified instructors. There is no cost to use the program, and neither students nor instructors who use the program are under any obligation to join DAN as a full member.
Student Membership is valid as soon as a registration is received by DAN. Coverage commences on the date the Student Membership roster is received from the registering instructor or when the student self registers and lasts through the end of the final dive needed for certification, or six months, whichever comes sooner.
Students can be enrolled three ways:
Upon receipt of a student's registration, both the student and instructor will receive via email a confirmation of registration and the student's new Student Member ID number.
