Big Blue Tech: Diving Medical Courses

The needs of the diving industry are demanding in the extreme sense. Safety regulations and compliance issues are a major concern. The potential for injury is obvious and many regulatory and industry standards setting agencies have addressed this in new and tightened regulations.

Upon completion of the three core programs, the student will be prepared for work in remote locations (where most diving takes place) and able to deal with accidents ranging from coral cuts and abrasions to DCI (Decompression Illness)Paralysis.

We have developed a complete list of Emergency Response, Diver Medical Technician and Chamber Operator programs to prepare the student for the rigors of emergency medical field care. It is also an excellent class for physicians to be introduced to the principles and physiology of diving medicine and the hyperbaric environment.

Due to the available location of our programs, students may have the rare and unique opportunity to act as “chamber operators” and “chamber tenders” for actual patients. This type of actual “hands-on” experience is priceless. These clinical sessions are conducted under the strict and constant supervision of the DMT Instructor/Coordinator and Chamber physicians.

The program is designed and presented in a modular format. It allows an individual with no prior medical training to progress to a Diver Medical Technician certification, in accordance with the NBDHMT Standards – the most rigorous in the world.

The program has three modules or components. With this modular design, the student can build a custom program suited to his or her needs.
