first-aidIHMP Dive Medic Program

IHMP (International Hyperbaric Medical Programs) were the First-Aid training division of ITDA from the beginning but due to expanding our first aid training and medical certifications beyond the diving industry.

IHMP First-Aid and Medical training now offer a complete range of training and certifications in First-Aid and Emergency Pre-Hospital Care for all environments and situations, no longer just for diving... But we are still specialists in Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine (HBOT).
