This benefit limit is US$20,000 and there is no cost to either the student diver or the instructors who teach them.
To be eligible to enroll students into the Student Diver Program, instructors must be registered with DAN World / Traveler EMS. There is no cost for registration and you do not need to be a client of DAN World / Traveler EMS to participate in this program. Simply click here to register.
Students who are enrolled in this program have no obligation to become a client of DAN World / Traveler EMS.

The Student Diver Program is open to any entry-level diver and any certified instructor teaching in an eligible country. Students under 18 need consent from a parent or guardian to enroll.
Enrollment is effective as soon as a client ID number is assigned (usually within 24 hours) and lasts through the end of the final dive needed for certification, or six months, whichever comes sooner.
