Dive Medic Training & Certification

About Dive Medic

 This is not a general first aid program and is ONLY focused on diving and marine environment injuries... It is not suitable as a general first program. It is a "Specialist Medically Orientated Program for those who may come into contact with diving accidents or injuries. 


Due to laws in certain Countries we have a two (2) year renewal process.  Just a 1/2 day review, Quiz and CPR Assessment...  Any IHMP Dive Medic Instructor may complete the review and also re-certify CPR if required.

Dive Medic First Aid Program

The IHMP Dive Medic program is more than just a first-aid program for divers, as the title "Dive-Medic" suggests, it is a medically orientated program which will be both challenging and rewarding for those taking it. The ITDA-IHMP Program requires a pre-study program of theory (6-8hrs) for 1 day program, or 2 Day full program no pre-study time.

Dive Medic First Aid Certification is required by standards for all ITDA Group Rescue Certifications and highly recommended from any diver level or from any agency....  The program may be included in our Rescue Diver and Aquatic Rescue Programs or it may be taught on its own as a "Dry Certification"...  CPR & Resuscitation overview is included.
