Marine Safety Instructor Training

The Alaska Marine Safety Education Association (AMSEA) is conducting a Marine Safety Instructor Training class in Seward, Alaska at the AVTEC, 809 Second Avenue, April 19 to April 24, 2021.

This is an intensive train-the-trainer course that prepares individuals to effectively teach cold-water survival procedures, the use of marine safety equipment, and vessel safety drills. Taught by experienced mariners, the MSIT is the only marine safety instructor course, specific to commercial fishing, that is nationally accepted by the U.S. Coast Guard. 

Topics covered during the course include Methods of Marine Safety Instruction; Emergency Procedures; Risk Assessment; How to Conduct Effective Drills; Cold-Water Survival Skills; Man-Overboard Recovery; Firefighting; Life Rafts; Abandon-Ship Procedures; Helicopter-Rescue; Flares, MAYDAYs, and Other Emergency Signals; Personal Flotation Devices; Flooding Control; Conducting Safety Orientations; and Cross-Cultural Communication. AMSEA recommends this workshop for anyone that wants to provide cold-water survival & survival, shore-side survival, or marine safety instruction. The MSIT provides practical, hands-on experience in survival equipment use and procedures.

Upon completion of the course, participants will be prepared to teach AMSEA’s U.S. Coast Guard approved Fishing Vessel Drill Conductor training, pending authorization from the Coast Guard. The cost for the class is $995. Scholarships are available for qualifying commercial fishermen, thanks to support from the National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health and the U.S. Coast Guard. Interested mariners can register online at or call (907) 747-3287.
All students must comply with classroom safety procedures for preventing the transmission of COVID-19 infections, including wearing face masks and maintaining six feet of physical distance from others.
