Chantelle Newman created “The Diver Medic” in 2010. Chantelle started a Facebook page to raise awareness about scuba diving safety and to provide medical information to divers all around the world. The Facebook group has gone viral all around the world, and divers are constantly learning new techniques and concepts. With her EMS and diving backgrounds, Chantelle has been working on providing the Diver Medical Technician course and has worked hard to become not only an IMCA (International Marine Contractors Association) approved training facility, but also to be able to provide the DAN Europe DMT course to recreational divers. Chantelle was inducted into the Woman Divers Hall of Fame as an honorary member in 2016. She also serves as an IMCA DMT Advisor for new ventures around the world.
