The NBDHMT is in the process of transferring responsibility for veterinary hyperbaric technologist training and certification to the Veterinary Hyperbaric Association, formerly known as the Veterinary Hyperbaric Medical Society.
With the maturing of the concert of a hyperbaric vet, in 2011, the NBDHMT was asked to serve as the administrative home for this sub-specialty designation. In agreeing to do so we invited Dr. Dennis Geiser to join the Board’s directors and charged him heading the process of formulating a training course and certification standards. Designated training subsequently became a combination of the existing human curriculum, where appropriate, with add-on sections specific to animal related safety, welfare, and clinical practice.
Over the ensuing years increasing numbers of veterinary specialists took advantage of this new professional designation. Veterinary hyperbaric interest has evolved to the point that an independent and highly focused profession accrediting organization has been introduced. All current NBDHMT certified CHT-Vs will soon notified about their lateral transfer to the VHA.
The NBDHMT wishes the VHA every success and is grateful to Dr. Geiser for his expert leadership in all of this.
