    Default Cold Water Survival Course in Anchorage?

    Howdy,
    Does anyone here know of a cold water survival course being offered in Anchorage? I don't need the helicopter egress training that seems to come with most cold water courses. Any help is appreciated.

    I would suggest looking up the Alaska Maritime Institute. I did my Underwater egress with them and i believe they offer cold water survival too.

    I did the cold water class with them. Great instructors. We did hands on work in Sand lake.

    Another vote for LTR. I took a cold water and underwater egress course with them several years ago, they're top notch.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

    Boreal:
    Other resources include the State of Alaska Office of Boating Safety (Cold Water Boating - free DVD!) http://dnr.alaska.gov/parks/boating/publications.htm ,the Alaska Marine Safety Education Association http://amsea.org/ and Cold Water Boot Camp http://coldwaterbootcampusa.org/ Lots of great books out there as well, including Essentials of Sea Survial by Golden & Tipton.

    Boat Safer!
