Confident. Responsible. Prepared.

EMS Diver Medical Responder Course (DMR)

As dive professionals we felt that we had a duty of care to our students and colleagues and that it was not only imperative to have a greater level of training and knowledge, but to feel equipped to deal with any dive emergency should one arise.

It was with this in mind that the Diver Medical Responder Courses were designed.

Aimed at the Recreational/Technical diving professional, these courses will allow you to develop the necessary skills and understanding to respond effectively to any medical emergency.


These courses are only available from EMS International and run each month on Koh Tao, Thailand, although, alternative locations can be arranged. A comprehensive introduction to both diving and non-diving medical emergencies, the Diver Medical Responder course is designed to prepare divers for any emergency.
