DHM accredited training sites

Training time towards the ANZCA diploma of advanced diving and hyperbaric medicine (Dip Adv DHM) must be completed at a suitable diving and hyperbaric medicine (DHM) facility.

The accreditation process of ANZCA DHM facilities is overseen by the DHM Sub-Committee, using a five-year accreditation cycle. The DHM Sub-Committee assesses the facility's ability to provide training and supervision to the required standard.

DHM facilities are accredited for a maximum of either 22 or 44 weeks full-time equivalent of training time. Accreditation applies to the facility and does not specify the number of trainees that can work in the facility, unless this is limited by supervisory capacity

The standards for ANZCA-accreditation are detailed in the Handbook for Advanced Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine Accreditation.

Applying for accreditation

DHM facilities wishing to apply for accreditation of the diploma should obtain and complete the accreditation data form. The completed form should be submitted to dhm@anzca.edu.au.

There are two application periods per annum with closing dates in February and October. Applications will be reviewed at the following DHM Sub-Committee meeting.
