The Diver Medic introduces DEMR course


Diver Medic

The Diver Medic has launched the Diving Emergency Medical Responder course, written and approved by Chantelle Newman.

Chantelle said: “The Diver Medic brand continues to grow, both on social media and again in training hundreds of divers around the world each year. Safety and saving lives comes from having knowledge and a comprehensive amount of knowledge comes from having the right training. That is why we have developed a course suitable for every diver, or even surface support officer out there.

“Welcome to the most comprehensive international diving accident, illness, and emergency medicine course to date. We are proud to bring you a course that instils confidence and understanding of the subject your instructor may not have had the knowledge and skills to teach you unless they were DEMR trained themselves.”

She continued: “Our main objective is to ensure divers get the right treatment in the event of an accident or diving emergency, whether inland or in a remote location. The Diver Medic is agency neutral. Our mission is to support all agencies in the quest for better medical training and safety for all divers.
