A refresher course for those who need their two-yearly refresher to maintain the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) Diver Medic Technician (DMT) qualification.
The DMT Refresher course has 30 contact hours. With the current COVID19 pandemic, 16 of these hours will be conducted via our tailor made pre-course e-learning platform. Actual class time will be 2 intensive days and is highly practical / scenario based.
Where Is The Course Held:
The training centre is based in Benalmadena, Spain. We are only 15 minutes from Malaga international Airport. We have a fabulous location in Puerta Marina; minutes from the beach, vibrant bars , restaurants and we are surrounded by hotels and AirBnB options. The area has embraced social distancing, Andalusia has never been terribly affected by the pandemic, but the area is proving a safe holiday option, many students attend with their family.

Having sat this course with Ian and his team twice now I can honestly say you won’t find a better constructed, fine tuned and honed course anywhere else.
Ian comes with a wealth of experience and is a true ambassador for the professional diving community. All staff are highly skilled, trained and current in their fields.
The course contains realistic scenarios aimed at developing and gaining confidence in your skills learned/refreshed during the course.
The equipment you will use is of the highest standard and all kit that you are supplied with is equipment found within your DMAC15 box ie you will get to know and familiarise yourself with the stuff you will be given if the worst should happen.
If you want to actually learn some real usable skills and gain confidence having actually performed them then your money is best invested at Trauma Training!
Thanks again Ian and team and looking forward to seeing you again in 2 years!

This course is the best , in my opinion , DMT/DMTR on the market. This is my 5th time doing it with Trauma Training , formerly LDC, and
Ian and the team are not only extremely knowledgable and professional , but they are still very relevant. The nurses Ian uses are still working in A and E wards. Ian himself as course leader , really has done it all. The equipment is first class , scenarios are realistic and the facilities are modern. I personally really enjoy the e-learning side of the course , working at my own pace . This means much more hands on stuff when you get there. The full course is still available to you online inc videos, in your account , for you to access at anytime. Great as a wee refresher. Cheers again!

Once again, After the 5th refresher course I am pleased to report the quality and depth of knowledge of the course hasn’t changed. What has changed is the addition of extra experienced staff and more e learning to provide flexibility for students. Well done again, see you in two years time!

The DMT refresher is always a pleasure to undertake, it does more than tick the boxes. Beyond refreshing hands on skills and knowledge, it levels up and enthuses a more invested and professional approach to the role of a DMT.

Ian and his amazing staff have a huge wealth of knowledge that they openly share with you during the course, it is always good to refresh your skills and learn new things on the way. The venue is top notch, the kit is great. on other courses kit felt tired and old here time and money has been spent in the right way.

Thanks to Ian and all the staff at Trauma Training, once again 10 out of 10 on the DMTR. I wish all training centers taught the content like in Trauma Training, we would be much safer out there…

A thorough and complete course run by very professional and competent nurses and medics. There are certainly less intense and challenging courses and refreshers out there but this course for me was a great experience and hands on learning. It will definitely be my refresher of choice in the future.

Great course, even better location.
Thanks to Ian and all his staff at Trauma Training.
The E-learning really suited the schedule I had available for the course fitting it in between home/ work life.
The practical side was great fun and backed up with Ian and his teams years of experience.
Will definitely be back again next time around!

Always a good course. Completed 2 refreshers here and both times it was delivered above and beyond what was expected.
Good instructors & good practical skills learnt, practical scenarios in realistic settings (always a lot of blood).
Location is outstanding also.

Good practical course run by Ian and his very friendly and competent staff. All done very efficiently and there is no standing around waiting for things to happen. Its realistic and relevant. The e-learning prior to the course is very helpful because it means less time away from home and much easier to fit into a busy schedule. The location is perfect and the school is situated 20mins from Malaga airport with loads of accommodation to choose from. All walking distance from the school. Highly recommended.

Best DMT / DMT-R I’ve done so far. Not being a fan of e-learning I must admit that the combination of e-learning and presential time was a very good combination.
Will surely recommend the course to all my friends .

Undoubtedly one of the best DMT courses I have done, not only because of the location, which is unbeatable, since while you do the course you can enjoy Malaga and the Costa del Sol.
The course is very practical, dynamic and enjoyable. Don’t expect to sit in a classroom for hours listening to Ian, or his staff talk without stop while you’re drifting off to sleep. You do a lot of practics and different scenarios.

My first time with Ian Hughes at Trauma Training, my first ‘blended e-learning’ course and it is definitely the future.
Being able to digest the theoretical lectures at your leisure before attending the practical portion is highly conducive to the retention of knowledge that would so often be vaguely noticed through a low-oxygen, post lunch torpor in many other locations, and leaves the 2 remaining days of practical lectures to be very intensive and rewarding.
All the staff were of unquestionable expertise and competence…there were no negative points I could think of…
And being located in a Marina on the Costa Del Sol isn’t a bad marketing strategy, either…!
I fully intend to do any further courses I might need here with Trauma Training.
