The ED 593 - Cold-Water Safety & Survival for Educators 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 (593 level) will be awarded by the University of Alaska Southeast. Additional information is available in the UAS Fall Class Schedule.

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.
