Student Cover

DAN’s Student Cover (open water or equivalent courses) is free of charge to entry-level students from the first pool session to the qualifying dive or for a duration of six weeks. Recreational dive, freediving and spear fisherman entry-level students are all eligible. Cover limit of R300,000. This complimentary dive cover, fully subsidised by DAN, covers entry-level students in the unlikely event of a dive injury during their entry-level training. As a diving-related injury or illness can be costly, it pays to be prepared. While entry-level students focus on learning to dive and getting comfortable underwater, DAN has them covered should an unexpected incident occur — above or below water.
