AMSEA to Offer Safety Instructor Training

The Alaska Marine Safety Education Association in Sitka has scheduled a six-day Marine Safety Instructor Training course for Seward, Alaska next spring, and for qualifying commercial fishermen there will be no charge.

For all others, the cost of the April 25-April 30 course will be $995.

AMSEA officials note that this is an intensive train-the-trainer course that will prepare individuals to effectively teach cold-water survival procedures, use of marine safety equipment, and vessel safety drills.

Those who complete the course will be prepared to teach AMSEA’s U.S. Coast Guard approved Fishing Vessel Drill Conductor training, pending authorization from the Coast Guard. Those individuals may elect to co-teach a Fishing Vessel Drill Conductor workshop in Seward on May 1.

The course will include instruction in how to prepare for emergencies, cold water near drowning, hypothermia, cold water survival, survival equipment, procedures and onboard drills, risk assessment, ergonomics, and methods of instruction.
