KBA Training launches Virtual Learning for IMCA Diver Medic Technician Refresher

Leading the new norm in enabling Diver Medic Technicians to remain certified
By: KBA Training Pte Ltd
CHANGI, Singapore - Nov. 19, 2020 - PRLog -- Training Provider, KBA Training Centre Pte Ltd (KBAT), is proud to announce the successful implementation and delivery of the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) Diver Medic Technician Refresher (DMTR) course via blended learning.

On 12 October 2020, KBAT successfully launched its first instructor led theory lessons via Virtual Learning for the IMCA DMTR course for Diver Medic Technicians (DMT) from its training studio in Singapore.

For IMCA DMTs to qualify for renewal of the IMCA DMTR, they are required to complete 30 hours of lessons. Theory lessons are conducted in real time by an instructor, with theory and practical life support technique demonstrations shown live, and examples shared using technology modes of delivery, similar to a face-to-face lesson. Upon completion of the theory lessons, practical demonstrations and online tests, the DMT contacts a practical training and assessment centre in their country of choice to complete their hands-on practical refresher training and assessment before a renewal certificate, is issued by KBAT. Currently, there are six approved practical training and assessment locations in Singapore (KBA Training Centre), Dubai (International Health and Safety Training Centre), Kuala Lumpur (Healing Chambers of Asia), Manila (Asian Hyperbaric Healthcare, Inc.), New Delhi (Advent Healthcare Private Limited), and Nonthaburi, Thailand (Sector 6 International Strategic Defense Co., LTD.).

"At the onset of COVID-19, IMCA extended the expiration of DMTs certificate to 30 September 2020. With the current travel restrictions due to COVID-19, and the limitations of 'green channels' between countries, many DMTs worldwide have found it challenging to attend our face-to-face training in Singapore. DMTs have eight weeks to renew their certification upon the expiration of their DMT certificate. As the 30th Sept 2020 extension ended, the industry faced a problem. How will individuals maintain their IMCA DMT training and certification, and how will contractors maintain their contract requirements of an in date / current IMCA DMT's in the dive team? KBAT established a Solution that has now reached many regions.  To date, over 40 DMTs have attended our training since the commencement of the DMTR course via virtual learning, and many have completed their practical training and assessments at one of our partner venues. We have received nothing but accolades from DMTs who have attended our training. As the pandemic is expected to continue beyond 2020, we are currently looking at working with more overseas practical and assessment partner centres." said Ms. Nurul Asshekin, General Manager of KBAT
