All –

As previously announced, we will host our annual training day on Saturday, May 4 from 0900-1600 at the Mantua Swim and Tennis Club, 9330 Pentland Place, Fairfax VA 22031. This year’s training will consist of the Divers’ Alert Network (DAN) Diving Emergency Management Provider (DEMP) course. This course is actually four courses packaged together by DAN: Basic Life-Saving (1st Aid/CPR), O2 Provider, Neurological Assessment, and Hazardous Marine Life Injuries. The DAN DEMP course satisfies the requirement for all dive leaders (instructors, divemasters) to maintain currency and be re-certified every two years. BAREG will also include AED (automated external defibrillator) training as part of the course.

In order to attend and receive credit, you must register in advance. To do so, please contact me (Click here) indicating you want to attend the course. You must do this using the same email account you will use when logging into the DAN website. Upon receipt of your email, I will “invite” you to participate in the course by entering your name and email address into the class roster on the DAN eLearning website. That will generate an email to you from DAN which will provide you access to the online portion of the course. You must complete the online portion before coming to the class on May 4. I will receive notification once you have satisfactorily completed the eLearning component of the course. At this point, you’re finished until time for class. Once you have completed the classroom portion of the training you will receive notification from DAN of your certification and the ability to download/print a certificate.

The course will cost $100 per person. You may pay by cash or check at the class, or let me know you wish to pay via PayPal and I will send you an invoice. The invoice will include a small fee to cover the PayPal service charge.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I anticipate that it will be a fun and very useful course to take.

Best – Bill
