Training & Events

Our highly skilled and experienced training team provide a wide range of top quality Medical, Hyperbaric and Safety courses.  Students come from all over the world, ranging from recreational and commercial divers, to offshore or maritime medics, to hyperbaric chamber operators, physicians and more.   Courses are delivered with a focus on the highest quality tuition, practical learning opportunities and cost effective prices. 

Our Hyperbaric Medical Centre in Plymouth is adjacent to the region's major trauma centre at Derriford Hospital and the Peninsula School of Medicine and Dentistry. We have clean, comfortable air conditioned training rooms fitted with multi-media projection systems and an extensive range of equipment which allow us to give our students excellent hands on experience.  Equipment includes resuscitation manikins, fully stocked paramedic kits, oxygen administration systems, AEDs, scoop stretchers and hardware such as recompression chambers, compressors etc. Our facilities also include a resuscitation room, medical bays, plant room and even our own mock sick-bay. All of this allows us to ensure our students work with experienced trainers to maximise their experience of realistic situations and scenarios, for example learning how hard it can be to evacuate personnel in a real emergency situation.

We frequently deliver training courses for international clients either in Plymouth, abroad or on board ship. For example we have delivered courses in Saudi Arabia, Thailand, USA and Tahiti. 

Our courses are accredited by a wide range of organisations, including IMCA, MCA, HSE and DMAC.
