Etant un organisateur de croisières plongée de par le monde , j'ai utilisé régulièrement mes compétences de secouriste DAN pour anticiper des problèmes ou pour prendre les bonnes décisions et effectuer les bons gestes lors de situations critiques. Et je trouve que diffuser les formations DAN est un devoir pour accroitre la sécurité et le bien-être des plongeurs. Message for the DAN Instructors Donner des formations DAN de tous niveaux est enrichissant, non seulement dans le processus d'apprentissage, mais aussi dans l'impact que vous avez sur la vie des plongeurs que vous formez. Savoir qu'un de vos élèves a sauvé une vie ou à réalisé une intervention efficace face à un plongeur accidenté est la plus belle récompense pour un formateur. n'hésitez pas à informer vos élèves de toutes les opportunités de cours que DAN propose, car souvent ils ignorent tous les avantages de ces formations.
