ADAS Diver Medic Technician


2 week ADAS Diver Medic Technician: $3,090 inc GST

The Underwater Centre’s ADAS Diver Medic Technician Course (DMT) is specifically designed to give you relevant, practical medical experience and knowledge, giving you the confidence to deal with medical emergencies in an offshore environment. The course is IMCA recognized and is comparable to the IMCA Diver Medic Course, so will provide you with additional skills to make you more employable in the subsea industry.

There is a requirement for at least one member of a dive team who is not diving, other than the supervisor, to be trained in advanced first aid.  Some, more remote countries require that 50% of a team in saturation are trained to Diver Medic standard. The role of a Diver Medic is a vital one in the offshore industry and is an integral member of any dive team. When offshore, the nearest medical help may be up to 5 days away due to decompression, so divers need to be able to rely on other members of their dive team for quick and vital medical help in case of an emergency.

The course incorporates hands-on skills training with our decompression chamber.  This, along with a combination of practical and classroom based training, means you will complete your training in the same situation that you will ultimately be working in, giving you experience that will benefit you and your colleagues in an emergency.

Including lectures given by diver medical practitioners with more than 30 years of experience treating divers, and guidance from instructors with years of diving experience, you can be confident that the training you receive with us is at the forefront of the subsea industry. Dr David Smart, who has decades of knowledge and experience in diving medicine, delivers a series of lectures throughout the course.

We also offer an ADAS Diver Medic Refresher course, for those who need to update their skills over 5 days. Refresher Price: $1,545 inc GST

Price: $3,090 inc GST . For all available dates and prices click here.
