This certification course provides pilots, aircrews, and passengers with basic preflight, in-flight, and post–aircraft-ditching knowledge and survival skills, including use of emergency breathing devices (EBDs). The course begins with a classroom session on aircraft ditching, followed by a session at an indoor pool where participants will practice their new survival skills. The course confirmation will list any supplies or materials participants must bring to class.

Learning Objectives: By the conclusion of the course, participants will have learned:

  • Prioritize tasks prior to ditching
  • Identify and perform critical steps in the use of underwater egress and EBDs
  • Identify water-survival skills.
