Take the next step to advance your first aid training by becoming an IMCA certified Diver Medic Technician (DMT). This certification pushes your critical analysis skills as you learn to respond and react quickly and effectively to emergency medical situations in diving, with a focus on hyperbaric environments and working in remote locations. Following strict safety standards, the DMT course increases your emergency preparedness, so if an accident occurs you are ready to respond.
On every dive team IMCA requires one member, excluding the supervisor and the divers underwater, to have their DMT advanced first aid training, making this qualification applicable and necessary in both saturation and air diving operations worldwide.
Upon successful completion of this course the qualified Candidates will be able to demonstrate competency in applying and administering advanced first-air emergency treatment. This course will emphasize practical application as the students hone their deductive reasoning skills during extensive in class practice simulations. This hands-on classroom experience will utilize specialized medical manikins and be taught under the supervision and guidance of a medical doctor. The skills learned will include patient assessment, splinting, suturing, inserting IV's and administering shots, all skills which will supplement and push the students previous first aid knowledge to the next level as we strive to train analytical, self-sufficient Diver Medics ready for the field.
This course offers International certification through IMCA (International Marine Contractors Association) and National certification through DCBC (Divers Certification Board of Canada)
