DAN presenta nuevos cursos de aprendizaje electrónico sobre Calidad del aire y Seguridad en embarcaciones de buceo

DURHAM, NC – November 6, 2019 – Divers Alert Network® (DAN®) has released two new e-learning courses for dive professionals, boat operators and anyone interested in learning more about safe diving practices. These courses, designed by DAN’s risk mitigation and training experts, offer those who put divers in the water an opportunity to refine the safety of their operations.

In 2018 the United States Coast Guard issued a Marine Safety Alert to remind owners and operators of dive vessels that recreational diving is not regulated by the Coast Guard and that licensed masters of commercial vessels that transport divers are ultimately responsible and accountable for the passengers’ safety. DAN created the Dive Boat Safety Best Practices e-learning course to help boat captains and dive professionals understand and implement the Coast Guard’s recommendations. This 30-minute course is designed not only to promote safe operations but also to serve as a reminder of important aspects of maritime safety as they relate to diving, making it useful for boat-diving operations worldwide.

Un gas respirable de calidad es algo en lo que confían todos los submarinistas, y respirar aire contaminado bajo el agua puede ser catastrófico. Todos los que llenan botellas deben poder garantizar la calidad del gas respirable que suministran y ser capaces de prevenir y gestionar los incidentes derivados del aire contaminado. DAN ha creado el curso de aprendizaje electrónico Aseguramiento de la calidad del gas respirable para ayudar a los operadores de compresores y al personal de buceo a identificar, prevenir y responder a los incidentes de contaminación del gas respirable.

Para acceder a estos cursos, vaya a DAN.DiverELearning.com, and click the “Available” tab. Both e-learning courses are available at no cost, and DAN encourages dive operators to integrate them into their existing staff training programs. Successful completion of these courses can shore up gaps in staff knowledge and illustrate your operation’s commitment to safe diving.
