Advanced medical personnel: To obtain a DMT Specialist certification through Hyperbarics International and the International Board of Undersea Medicine the participant must have taken a 1 or 2 year medical training program as a PA, Nurse, Paramedic, Military Medic, or other allied medical professional training; in addition to being an active scuba diver. These medics should be qualified to work off shore on barges, ships, oil rigs, and on inland diving operations. They may also fill in for doctors and manage medical problems for all divers and other crew members, as well as be in contact with a physician on the beach. Since gases under pressure are a liquid, these medics should be able to maintain and supervise air/oxygen chamber operations in hospitals and maintain all facility operations working with the doctor.
