Arctic Education Implementing the Arctic Strategy in Training

Project PI’ s: Ms. Susan Hazlett, Ralph Pundt, CAPT, USCG (Technical PI)

Lead Institution: Maine Maritime Academy

Project Description:
This project includes three courses developed and submitted over three years. Years one and two have involved the construction of the Basic Ice Navigation course, which is complete and is currently being offered as a face-to-face class at Maine Maritime Academy. The course has been submitted to the Coast Guard for approval for Standards of Training, Certification, and Watchkeeping (STCW) certification.

The Advanced Ice Navigation course had been pushed into upcoming program year because of the expanded scope of the basic class. It is in the development phase and we are currently working on building bridge simulations that will be a requirement for the course. In addition, the symposium that was planned for Year 2 will not be held in Year 3.
