This month’s diver medic refresher training course was once again successfully delivered. Some 35 medics representing oilfield, inshore, military, FBI and scientific diving communities attended. Their post-course compliments and praise were uniform and not just because we fed them catfish po-boys and gumbo!
Holding this training in conjunction with the Association of Diving Contractors International “Underwater Intervention” offers several benefits. DMT’s can also register for Underwater Intervention and they get to enjoy Mardi Gras. Most importantly, it is always held in New Orleans so we have ready access to the diving medical experts at LSU/Spirit of Charity Trauma Center. All disciples of the illustrious Dr. Keith Van Meter, they willingly give of their time and expertise each year, and without expectation. The Board is always very grateful for what they do and the diver medics in attendance recognize that they are in the presence of highly trained very experienced and always accommodating subject matter experts.
