DFA Pro satisfies the CPR/First Aid prerequisite for PADI Rescue, Divemaster and other courses and also meets OSHA’s workplace requirements. DFA Pro combines four DAN courses:
CPR Health-Care Provider with First Aid
Emergency Oxygen for Scuba Diving Injuries
First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries
