How to become a DAN Instructor
The DAN Instructor Qualification Course (IQC) is the pathway to becoming a DAN Instructor. Active diving professionals who are DAN Members are eligible to enroll in this program. A CPR instruction credential is also required but can be obtained as part of the IQC.
DAN Instructors who work with individuals who dive as part of their job or volunteer duties will want to consider adding the DFA PRO module as part of their IQC.
Do any or all of the IQC modules, selecting the courses that work best to meet the needs in your market area. We recommend you do all, there is no additional fee. The program takes approximately 1-2 days to complete depending on your course selections and your current level of training. We will provide additional training as required to ensure your proficiency with the skills and materials.
Instructors must maintain active teaching status with DAN to conduct DAN training programs. To maintain active teaching status, DAN Instructors must teach or assist with teaching each course in which they are certified once within a 24-month period.
- Your Instructor is a DAN Examiner, Paramedic and Dive Medic with many years of actual patient care experience.
