Flotilla 6-6 Member Training

New Member (BQ) Training

New Member (BQ) Training

As of 01 MAR 2015, the National HR Directorate is "beta testing" a method for training new members with mentor involvement and Performance Qualification Standard (PQS) sign offs. This method of training is not mandatory yet, but can be used for training.

The information below and attached provide the details of the program:


The program is designed around 10 sessions of training conducted in approximately two hour per session with a mentor.

The members may begin or end their learning experience at their convenience.

Both the mentor and the student will be provided a set of Frequently Asked Questions and Answers designed to facilitate the learning experience.

The members may seek additional clarifications from the mentor using a variety of media including c-mail.

Periodic Multiple Choice Progress Checks are included in the training package.

A Final Multiple Choice Examination will be taken online with the member receiving immediate feedback.

Successful completion of the PQS will be recognized with a Certificate of Completion from the Training Directorate.

Methods of Completion:
Because of the wide ranging capabilities of Auxiliarists, a variety of methods for taking the mandated training and establishing AUXDATA credit have been established as listed here:

Online using AUXLMS: This is the fastest and most efficient way to complete the courses. Some Auxiliarists have completed all 8 courses in a single day while others have taken one course at a time when convenient to their schedule. Once completed, AUXDATA registration is automatic and no other members need be involved. Here is the link to AUXLMS: . A special username and password is required. A detailed description of AUXLMS can be found here:

Classroom Training: Many auxiliarists prefer the classroom environment with a certified Instructor leading the discussion. AUXDATA registration is done through the use of a 7039 form. The full course description should be stated in the "remarks" section of the form and no boxes should be checked. Member name and ID number is put on the form and the form is sent to an IS staff officer for registration. There are two ways an instructor can present the class:
   •Internet Connection Available: The instructor can log into AUXLMS with their own account and project the online    course on a screen.
   •Power Point Slide Presentation: The instructor downloads power point presentations for each course and then    projects the slides to the class as with any other course.

Self-Certification: There are two ways a member may self-certify by completing training and filling out a self-attestation form, which you can access by CLICKING HERE . The self-training can be done the following ways:
   •Video:The member can view the voice-over PowerPoint training videos (see above table) when these become    available. After viewing the video(s), the member must complete the self-attestation form and mail it to their IS    officer.
   • Hard Copy:The member can obtain and study a hard copy of the PDF version of annotated PowerPoint slides    (listed above as “pdf”) from their leadership. This form of training is meant for the exceptional case where online    access is not available to the member and classroom training is not readily available. Upon completion, the member    must complete the self-attestation form and mail it to their IS officer.

To reiterate, at the completion of each course, the member must complete the self-attestation form affirming that they have read and understood the contents of the training course(s) and then send the form(s) to their designated flotilla IS officer for data entry. The IS officer should treat this form just like a 7039 form for an individual.

Learn about the Boat Crew Qualification Program

 Welcome Trainees

Welcome aboard! And, thank you for making a commitment to support the United States Coast Guard as a trainee in the Auxiliary’s Boat Crew Qualification Program. Once qualified, you will serve as a crew member on Auxiliary operational facilities as they perform their multi-mission patrols in support of Station Eatons Neck.

Your training will include shoreside training in such skills as first aid, radio communication, navigation, and marlinespike seamanship. In early June, the training activities will shift to our boats for the on-water part of your training. There, you will develop skills needed for search and rescue, bringing a disabled boat into tow, rescuing a person from the water, and boat handling.

Your mentors and trainers will guide and challenge you, as you study, learn, practice, and demonstrate your proficiency in the tasks included in the sign-off manual.

In addition, as an operational part of the United States Coast Guard you will be expected to complete the FEMA Incident Command System on/line tests for IS-100 and IS-700. These self study courses help us to fit into a coordinated network along with other emergency responders.

The USCG’s 4 hour Team Coordination Training (TCT), and documentation that you have completed a boating safety course will also be needed.

Finally, when you have completed all aspects of training, your mentors will recommend you to a Qualification Examiner. The QE will check that your skills meet the minimum requirements set by the Coast Guard.

Unlike most programs, there is a large investment made on your behalf in terms of time and effort. It takes 2 vessels manned by 2 qualified Coxswain/Crew Teams (6 operations members) each on water training day. Wherever possible, your training will be integrated into our weekend patrols.

We can not guarantee that there will be sufficient boats available to meet the training needs of all our boat crew trainees; priority will be given to those members that have a track record demonstrating their commitment to the US Coast Guard Auxiliary.

There are certain expectations you should be aware of up front before you start.

     •You must follow all safety requirements of the USCG Aux. It should be noted that the USCG       AUX. does not allow the wearing of jewelry on patrol. This restriction includes wedding rings.
      •You will be expected to make the classes, and be prepared for each class, which usually       means you will need to devote some home study time.
      •You will also, be expected to support the USCG through Auxiliary's Operations Missions upon       successful completion, by serving on as a crew member on patrols. Patrols are usually       scheduled for weekends and holidays.

The process takes several months but the successful candidates feel good about the accomplishment they achieved. You can wear your operational medal with pride, the Operations Team certainly knows you have earned it.

Semper Paratus!
