Fishing Vessel Drill Conductor Workshop in Kemah, Texas

The Alaska Marine Safety Education Association (AMSEA) will offer a Fishing Vessel Drill Conductor Workshop in Kemah, Texas on Wednesday, January 25, 2017 from 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM at Triad Marine, 1155 FM 518 Road. This workshop is an excellent opportunity for commercial fishermen and other mariners to gain hands-on training with marine safety equipment and learn best practices for surviving emergencies at sea.
Instructor Bruce Dyleski will cover man-overboard recovery and firefighting; EPIRBs, flares, and maydays; emergency drills; helicopter rescue; life rafts and abandon ship procedures; PFDs, immersion suits, and cold-water survival skills.
The workshop meets the U. S. Coast Guard training requirements for drill conductors on 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 and the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). The cost for all others in $175 and all mariners are welcome. Interested mariners may register online at www.amsea.org or call AMSEA at (907) 747-3287.
