Diving Medical Technicians (DMT) are trained in a range of advanced first aid and basic paramedical techniques.  In an emergency, the DMT may be expected to assist in the initial diagnosis, tend to the patient, administer medication and/or fluids and take control of the situation until a Diving Doctor or other medical help arrives.

IMCA certified DMT training is offered by Seneca College, Commercial Diving Institute and the Divers Institute of Technology.

DCBC certified DMT training to the CSA standard is offered by the Atlantic Commercial Diving Centre (ACDC)
