This course is web-based and requires online discussion. Course assignments are submitted online and graded throughout the semester. Like the in-person workshop, this training is designed for schoolteachers and others who work with youth. The workshop provides training in:

 

 

  • Cold-Water Safety & Survival

  • Outdoor Preparedness

  • Hypothermia

  • 7 Steps to Survival

  • PFDs

  • Immersion Suits

  • Minimizing Flooding

  • Rescue Techniques

  • MAYDAYs

  • Emergency Signals

  • Risk Assessment & Management

  • Methods of Instruction

 

The course focuses on implementing AMSEA's four-volume, Surviving Outdoor Adventures, curriculum for use with children grades k-12 in the classroom, pool, open water, and other settings.  Some topics not suited for online delivery are omitted from this course. For this reason, completion of this course alone does not qualify participants to borrow training gear from AMSEA. Completion of this course PLUS a teaching practicum qualifies the participant to checkout gear. A practicum can be scheduled on an individual basis after the class.
