Durham, North Carolina – 4 October 2017 – Along with the many perks of being a dive professional – including opportunities to explore new dive sites, meet new people and experience new destinations – comes the ultimate responsibility of safeguarding lives. Every day, dive professionals around the globe act as dive safety champions protecting the divers in their care; which is why DAN is taking a stand to champion and protect dive professionals. Join DAN November 1 - 4 at the 2017 DEMA Show in Orlando, Florida and learn about new dive safety initiatives and DAN Professional Membership benefits designed to help dive professionals, operators and divers be #DANSAFE.

“DAN’s focus at DEMA is all about the professionals and operators who are on the frontlines of diver safety,” says DAN President and CEO Bill Ziefle. “They make their jobs look easy, but we recognize the fact that they operate under a considerable level of responsibility and the associated risk can be high. DAN is here to support dive businesses, professionals, and the entire industry for that matter, with risk mitigation and safety initiatives dedicated to reducing dive incidents and injuries. DAN has a lot to offer at this year’s show and I invite everyone to stop by the DAN booth to learn more.” 

Protecting Those Who Protect Others
All dive professionals are encouraged to find out more about how the DAN Professional Membership program helps better protect divers and the pros who train them. DAN Professional Membership offers exclusive access to the following benefits:

  • New DAN Professional Liability Insurance – created with the real-world demands of instructors in-mind and delivered at the lowest possible rates to DAN Professional members.
  • DAN Student Medical Expense Coverage – coverage entirely subsidized by DAN and offered free to entry-level divers to help protect students and give dive professionals a competitive advantage.
  • DAN Prepared Diver course – a supplementary course for all divers focusing on how to avoid common dive incident triggers. Offered to DAN Professionals at no cost with a retail value of US$25.00, the DAN Prepared Diver course can not only increase dive safety, it can also increase a dive professional’s revenue opportunities.
  • DAN’s robust library of dive safety resources – a good instructor is always learning, and DAN’s expansive library of diver health and safety publications is an excellent resource for the latest dive research and medical findings.
