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-accepted Fishing Vessel Drill Conductor training, pending authorization from the Coast Guard.
