NEW BASIC QUALIFICATION (BQ) NEW MEMBER COURSE - BETA SITE
D1SR has been selected along with two other Districts to initiate a new BQ training program for new members. This program provides an extensive background on the US Coast Guard, Auxiliary and our missions and traditions. It provides for a mentor at the Flotilla level and PQS's that need sign offs. It has been requested that all Flotillas start using this program and provide the DCDR with names of mentors, students and provide monthly progress reports. Depending on how well this develops the program may go national. Let's give a good accounting of Division 15!
Information and links to the program and materials are located here.
Members still need to complete the Mandated Training required by the USCG.
As quoted in the release about AUXLMS (Auxiliary Learning Management System), “The purpose of MT (Mandated Training) is to build awareness and enhance the knowledge, skills, abilities, and attitudes of the Coast Guard's workforce.”
If you are a current member, you have until December 31, 2016, to complete all the courses. New members will have to take these courses in their first year of membership.
These courses need to be taken before December 31, 2016, and every 5 years after initially taking them:
(1) DHS Together - Resilience Training - course code 502379
(2) Security Education and Training Awareness (SETA) - course code 810030
(3) Privacy at DHS / Protecting Personal Information - course code 810015
(4) Sexual Harassment Prevention - course code 810000
(5) Sexual Assault Prevention and Response - course code 810045
(6) Civil Rights Awareness - course code 502319
The following two courses only need to be taken once:
(1) Ethics 1 / Personal Gifts - course code 502306
(2) Influenza Training - course code 502290
This is not something to panic about. If you look at the courses, you will find that it is suggested that some only take 45 minutes to do and others may take 1 hour and 30 minutes. If you tackle some of these classes now when the weather is cold, summer will be here before you know it.
