AMSEA is offering an educator's workshop, Surviving Outdoor Adventures, in Sitka Alaska. This hands-on course is designed for teachers and other educators interested in teaching cold water safety and survival. It provides teachers with three credits toward re-certification of their Teaching Certificates.
Surviving Outdoor Adventures earns three 593 credits through the University of Alaska Southeast-Sitka to those successfully completing the course. It teaches content on hypothermia, personal flotation devices, cold-water safety and survival, land survival, local food, basic navigation, and ice safety and rescue using activities from AMSEA's K-12 curriculum, Surviving Outdoor Adventures. The content of this course covers material from all four volumes of the Surviving Outdoor Adventures curriculum.
Students successfully completing this course will be prepared to teach these topics to their students, and will have created a lesson plan and be certified to teach and use AMSEA resources. AMSEA maintains an extensive lending library of gear and teaching aids for instructor usage. Students that have co-taught with AMSEA instructors may borrow gear for use in their classes. There will be a co-teaching opportunity for students, June 28 & 29, at AMSEA's two-day, youth Outdoor Survival Camp in Sitka.
Give your students the training they need to survive outdoor emergencies!
