AMSEA is conducting a Marine Safety Instructor Training class in Sitka, Alaska at the Public Safety Training Academy, 877 Sawmill Creek Rd., from 9/21-9/26/20.
This is an intensive 6-day train-the-trainer course that prepares individuals to effectively teach cold-water survival procedures, the use of marine safety equipment, and vessel safety drills. Taught by experienced mariners, the MSIT is the only marine safety instructor course, specific to commercial fishing, that is nationally accepted by the U.S. Coast Guard.
Topics covered include: Methods of Marine Safety Instruction; Emergency Procedures; Risk Assessment; How to Conduct Effective Drills; Cold-Water Survival Skills; Man-Overboard Recovery; Firefighting; Life Rafts; Abandon-Ship Procedures; Helicopter-Rescue; Flares, MAYDAYs, and Other Emergency Signals; Personal Flotation Devices; Flooding Control; Conducting Safety Orientations; and Cross-Cultural Communication. AMSEA recommends this workshop for anyone that wants to provide cold-water survival & survival, shore-side survival, or marine safety instruction. The MSIT provides practical, hands-on experience in survival equipment use and procedures.
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. All students must comply with classroom safety procedures for preventing the transmission of COVID-19 infections, including wearing face masks and maintaining six feet of physical distance from others.
The cost for the class is $995. Partial scholarships are available for qualifying commercial fishermen, thanks to support from the National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health and the U.S. Coast Guard. Interested mariners can register online at www.amsea.org or call (907) 747-3287.
