Diver Medic Technician
Commercial, professional and scientific divers often find themselves at work in medical and geographic isolation. Medical evacuation of injured divers can be complicated by long distances and large bodies of water. This process may be further complicated by access difficulties, such as no runway and limited helicopter landing capabilities. Further, decompression accidents require immediate recompression. Delays in definitive treatment can result in fatal outcome, permanent neurological injury, or other career-ending complications.
DMT training programs provide focused didactic and practical training that addresses recognition, stabilization and treatment of decompression and other diving-related injuries. These topics represent core curriculum, as does the necessary invasive skills that permit optimal medical management. Additional course content includes decompression procedures, chamber operations, and marine life injuries. Region-specific topics such as cold water diving and tropical diving issues, altitude diving, represent optional material.

This school is not just taking your money and handing out certificates. CDT properly prepares you for one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. Through just my first 2 months here it has become apparent to me that what they are focusing on, is putting competent divers into the commercial industry.

Great Instructors, lots of one on one time, you dive almost every day, and the staff works hard to continuously update the facility to make sure you get the knowledge you need when you leave. I am glad I went to school here.
