Dive Medical Technician (DMT) Certificate

See Details

The Dive Medic Program teaches the kind of medical procedures used by emergency rooms and other physicians to revive patients and save lives. Such techniques include advanced resuscitation and cardiac techniques that open blocked airways, relieve life-endangering buildup of pressure in the chest cavity and lungs, replace lost body fluids and blood, and close open wounds. Decompression in a hyperbaric chamber at CDA Technical InstituteThese programs also teach diver medic technicians how the body responds physiologically to varying underwater pressures. That knowledge is used in two ways. First, it allows diver medic technicians to treat diving-related injuries such as decompression sickness—a possibly life-threatening condition that occurs when divers surface from the depths of the ocean too quickly. Second, knowing how the body responds to changing pressure allows dive medic technologists to bring injured divers to the water surface safely and treat their injuries until they can be evacuated. Small classes allow for individualization in an environment that fosters intellectual exchange and practical, hands-on instruction.

In assuming its role in the development of professional divers and dive medics, CDA is keenly aware of its responsibility in promoting an unyielding commitment to the highest standards of safety and offering the most up-to-date methods and practices in the field. To this end, the Academy is committed to continuing to develop and maintain strong partnerships with businesses in the region and making use of state-of-the art technology and training resources within the industry.
