Marine Safety Instructor Training in Seward April 24-29

The Alaska Marine Safety Education Association (AMSEA) is conducting a six-day Marine Safety Instructor Training (MSIT) at AVTEC in Seward, Alaska, from April 24 to April 29, 2018. The MSIT is an intensive train-the-trainer course that prepares individuals to effectively teach cold-water survival procedures, use of marine safety equipment, and vessel safety drills.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be prepared to teach AMSEA’s U.S. Coast Guard approved Fishing Vessel Drill Conductor training, pending authorization from the Coast Guard.  Participants may elect to co-teach a Fishing Vessel Drill Conductor workshop in Seward on April 30.


Topics covered in the workshop will include preparation for emergencies; cold-water near drowning; hypothermia; cold-water survival; survival equipment; emergency procedures and onboard drills; risk assessment; ergonomics; and methods of instruction.
A limited number of scholarships may be available to qualifying commercial fishermen thanks to support from the U.S. Coast Guard and the National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health. The cost for all others is $995. Additional information and registration are available at or call (907) 747-3287.
