The Alaska Marine Safety Education Association, or AMSEA, will offer a Fishing Vessel Drill Conductor Workshop in Seward from 8 a.m.-7p.m. April 20 at AVTEC, 809 Second Ave. This workshop will cover cold-water survival skills; EPIRBs, flares and maydays; man-overboard recovery and firefighting; immersion suits and PFDs; emergency drills, helicopter rescue, life rafts and abandon ship procedures.
The workshop meets the training requirements for documented commercial fishing vessels operating beyond the federal boundary line. It is offered to commercial fishermen at no cost, thanks to support from the United States Coast Guard, the Alaska Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development and the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health.
