New Mandated Member Training on AUXLMS

The Department of Homeland Security, the Coast Guard and the Auxiliary have jointly established what is believed to be the base knowledge level needed by our members. ThisAUXLMS training has been mandated by the September 2011 revision to the Auxiliary Manual (AUXMAN). 

You can fulfill your Auxiliary Mandated Training requirements by completing them online via the Coast Guard's Auxiliary Learning Management System (AUXLMS).

Using AUXLMS, you can take all mandated classes (e.g., Ethics, Sexual Harassment Prevention, et al.) as well as getting access to other training such as ICS-210. 

Completion of training modules will automatically be recorded in AUXDATA and downloaded on a regular basis to the other systems.  

A second/third/fourth route is to download or view the various courses yourself using this web page. The options are watching a video (with sound), downloading and viewing a Power Point presentation or downloading and reading through an Adobe file.  Choose which ever method works best for you -- a mix of methods also works. 

NEW - As of 21 Mar 2016. - If you complete the training using the video or Power Point or Adobe files you can self certify completion of each course by following the instructions on this page. An alternate in Division 2 is to fill out the self-certification form and send a scan of it to the SO-CS of Division 2 for entry in AUXDATA.


FEMA courses in Region X are listed on their calendar at this location.  Many of the courses are open to members of the Auxiliary, click on any course on the calendar for additional information and registration.
