diving medical technician

Diving Medical Technicians, known as DMT’s, are divers who specialize in advanced first aid working on and offshore. They ensure the safety of the entire dive team, proactively identifying hazards, assessing diver’s needs and executing underwater emergency responses. On the job, they’re part of the dive team and trained to act in the event of an accident or medical emergency. When offshore, DMTs may be required to intervene within a dry bell or chamber and perform a medical intervention in hyperbaric conditions.

Course Description

Course length: 40 hrs
course cost: $1,950.00

The Diver Medic Course is designed to give the necessary knowledge, skills and abilities to perform Medical intervention as an integral part of the dive team. Due to the inherently dangerous work, the industry standard for a designated Diver Medic on all employer-sponsored dives has been established by the U.S.C.G. and O.S.H.A. to provide prompt and adequate treatment of injured divers. The DMT course is open to firefighters, EMT, commercial divers, military divers, combat medics and others who qualify. To qualify for certain DMT course certifications, you need to meet prerequisites for each category/certifying organization. If you do not meet these, you may request an interview with the course director to determine your eligibility to attend the course and receive appropriate certifications. for details on this course please contact: HM recompression services, haywood thomson  407-782-8336
