AMSEA strives to train marine safety instructors on every coast. That's why we hold Marine Safety Instructor Training (MSIT) classes not only in Alaska, but in different parts of the country each year. Our next MSIT will be held February 3-8, in Abbeville, Louisiana. This is an excellent opportunity for anyone on the Gulf Coast or Southeast Atlantic Coast to train to become an AMSEA instructor. The MSIT is AMSEA’s six-day, USCG-accepted, train-the-trainer course. MSIT graduates are qualified to teach marine safety & survival topics, like survival gear, firefighting, damage control, man overboard recovery, distress signals, abandon ship procedures, and sea survival.
