The Online Educator’s Workshop is designed for schoolteachers and others who work with youth. This course is web-based and requires online discussion. Course assignments are submitted online and graded throughout the semester. Successful completion of this course certifies one to teach AMSEA's K-12 curriculum, Surviving Outdoor Adventures. Participants will also come way with lesson plans they can use with their own students. Two graduate-level academic credits will be awarded by the University of Alaska Southeast. 


Instructor Marian Allen will cover:


  • Cold-Water Safety & Survival

  • Outdoor Preparedness

  • Hypothermia

  • 7 Steps to Survival

  • PFDs

  • Immersion Suits

  • Minimizing Flooding

  • Rescue Techniques


  • Emergency Signals

  • Risk Assessment & Management

  • Methods of Instruction


The course focuses on implementing AMSEA's four-volume, Surviving Outdoor Adventures, curriculum for use in the classroom, pool, open water, and other settings.  Completion of this course plus a teaching practicum qualifies the participant to checkout safety & survival gear, as well as other teaching aids from AMSEA's extensive lending library collection. A practicum can be scheduled on an individual basis after the class.


Give your students the training they need to survive outdoor emergencies!
