Dive accidents are rare, but they may require prompt, specific action. No single set of skills will meet all the various demands a dive accident may present. The Diving Emergency Management Provider (DEMP) program combines skills from four first-aid courses offered by your instructor to streamline and put into context the care that may be necessary.
This course is FREE for volunteers that have logged a minimum of 32 volunteer hours with Aquanauts Adaptive Aquatics within the last year. Otherwise, there is a purchase option at the ticket linket.
You will complete your academic portion online (invitation will be received upon purchase), and then your practical portion will begin on this date at the location below.
June 01, 2018 6:00pm
Pompano Dive Center
Sands Harbor Marina
101 N Riverside Drive #111
Pompano Beach, FL 33062
Again, complete your academics prior to arrival for practical portion.
IMPORTANT: To qualify for the sponsored ticket, you must be a volunteer with Aquanauts Adaptive Aquatics AND have logged a minimum of 32 volunteer hours within the last year. If you are unsure of your volunteer hours logged, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to verify.

So, after many long days, we have submitted a grant application to the Veterans Administration. We will know by September if we are able to obtain funding. If so, it could mean a comprehensive SCUBA Recreational Therapy Program for veterans with disabilities. Since SCUBA is a great treatment for many impairments, like PTSD and Spinal Cord Injuries, etc. we are really looking forward to making these programs more available. Power of positive thinking! Help us make it happen.
In the meantime, we would love to hear your testimonials on SCUBA Diving as a therapeutic program. Share them on our facebook page (www.Facebook.com/AdaptiveScubaPrograms) or any of our other Social Media pages. Also, check us out on Guidestar and share your stories there. These stories go a long way in securing funding to keep the program going.
