DV Diving offer a range of Medic First Aid courses. MFA courses are clearly structured in a standardised format and are readily understandable by all users. MFA Instructors use standardised methods and materials for delivering courses, all learning outcomes are clearly specified in terms of knowledge, understanding and practical application. All instructors have a registry handbook, which includes the instructor guides, rules and regulations, documentation and various other relevant information. This lends itself to an objective methodology of training removing subjective views of the individual Instructor.

The programme methodology is based on seeing hearing and doing and on a continuous assessment process. As a leader in the field of first aid training, MFA has applied the performance-based philosophy of training for over twenty years. Performance is measured individually as student's progress through the essential skills. The main emphasis is aimed at hands on patient care and is structured in a linear format. Each skill is in itself a performance objective and must be achieved before progression to the next skill. The facilitator's assessment methods are valid, clearly defined and reliable.

Consistency in training and assessment is achieved by requiring instructors and assessors to undergo a formal Instructor training course. Instructors are supplied with standardised lesson plans and course materials. This provides for an objective and consistent standard of delivery nation-wide. Instructors are updated on a quarterly basis in the format of a training bulletin/newsletter. Instructors are required to renew every two years and must fulfil certain requirements during that period. Selection criteria for instructors are in accordance with the requirements of the Health & Safety Executives Guidance for Training Organisations
