Diver Medic Technician

> HOME

  

Diver Medic Technician (DMT) is an international course to provide advanced first aid and emergency treatment to the injured or unwell diver in remote locations. The course trains life-saving procedures in critical situations, where medical personnel cannot be on site quickly. The emphasis is on professional communication with a remote dive medical physician and carrying out the instructions of the dive medical physician while waiting for medical assistance. In addition to the usual diving medical skills of the Dutch course Diving Medical Attendant (former MAD-A), you will also learn the basics of stitching, infusion, injecting, catheterisation, control of bleeding, immobilisation of injured parts, treatment in the decompression chamber and preparing the patient for safe transport.

 

Certificate

Onshore DMT Proof of Participation

An Onshore DMT Proof of Participation is issued to candidates who meet the general course requirements, but are not certified in an IMCA recognised offshore diver certificate. For example, for recreational divers or diving instructors who often dive in remote areas or firefighters who want to expand their diving medical knowledge.

Offshore DMT certificate

The Offshore DMT Certificate is a certificate recognised by IMCA. This certificate gives authority for international, offshore diving assignments where work is carried out in accordance with IMCA guidelines. The offshore DMT certificate is issued to candidates holding an IMCA recognised offshore diver certificate. View the list of recognised IMCA qualifications below. 

  • General course requirements: every participant must have a valid dive medical in order to enter a decompression chamber.
  • Dutch territory: both certificates do not give any authority on Dutch territory. Under Dutch law, you must have a BIG registration to carry out reserved procedures (such as suturing and injecting) independently.

  

The course

The course is given by experienced medical professionals, including SWOD certified dive medical physicians. The training consists of (online) theoretical modules and intensive practical training in the medical classroom and the decompression tank. To make the practical training as realistic as possible, we use modern training aids and a diving medical kit according to DMAC 015.
