On announcement from worldwide authorities of the mandatory shutdown period, restricted travel, the International Marine Contractor Association (IMCA) extended existing DMT Certification that required renewal with an expiry date for the extension period set at 30th September 2020 (ref IMCA D05/20).

Attendees will be taught how to assess the casualty promptly and provide resuscitative measures with up to date emergency first aid equipment. This course will provide the attendees with IMCA approved DMT certification that is recognised internationally by the industry.
