AMSEA's next Fishing Vessel Drill Conductor Training (MSIT) will be held in September 23-28, 2019 in Sitka, Alaska. The MSIT is an intensive train-the-trainer course that prepares individuals to effectively teach cold-water survival procedures, use of marine safety equipment, and vessel safety drills. It also prepares one to teach AMSEA's U.S. Coast Guard-accepted Fishing Vessel Drill Conductor class.
Check out the slideshow above for a preview of what's on offer. But, course topics include preparation for emergencies, cold-water near drowning, hypothermia, cold-water survival, survival equipment, procedures & onboard drills, risk assessment, ergonomics, and methods of instruction. Scholarships are available for qualifying commercial fishermen.
Do you want to bring AMSEA's life saving, marine safety training to your community, organization, or school? You can help make a difference. We regularly hear from people that tell us that their training helped them to handle an emergency at sea. Get more information on this year's Sitka MSIT here or gives us a call at (907) 747-3287.
