Job Opportunities

The Diver Medic Technician is a compulsory part of any dive team, hence why a DMT Cert is a great addition for any part 3 diver, if your intent is working offshore in the oil and gas industry. When combined with the ALST or LST course these industry recognised ADAS qualifications give a new commercial diver the very best chance of gaining your first job in the offshore industry.

Because DMT’s are so valuable, it is not uncommon for companies to hire exclusively DMT trained individuals, on a normal work day, the life of a DMT is no different than that of a normal diver, a DMT is not hired as a DMT but instead hired as a diver, who in emergency can act as a first responder until a hyperbaric doctor is able to take over.
