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.

Underwater Burning Specialist

Commercial Diving Technologies LLC (CDT) is leading the industry in providing advanced expert training in oxy-arc cutting.

Employers must provide operator training before personnel conduct oxy-arc cutting operations. All dive personnel and supervisors engaged in underwater oxy-arc cutting operations must be familiar with industry-established safe practices and standards of use as found in the Association of Diving Contractors International “Consensus Standards for Commercial Diving” and International Marine Contractors Association “Guidelines for Oxy-Arc Cutting”.

CDT is currently conducting on-going stand-alone training of commercial diving personnel in the safe and efficient use of underwater oxy-arc burning.

CDT is an AMAZING Dive School! Ken and Sid are extremely knowledgeable about the diving industry. They go above and beyond to make sure that all the students learn and understand in-depth the ins and out of the diving industry and all that it has to offer. The Instructors are very hands-on and engaged in the student’s growth and learning. I would highly recommend CDT to anyone who wants to go into the Diving Industry.

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.
