AUX-10 CLASS INFORMATION:

The goal of the AUX-10 C-School is to train Auxiliary Information Services (IS) Officers. Topics covered include: responsibilities of IS officers, missions performed by Auxiliary members, forms used for reporting, relationship of forms to AuxData, data entry, retrieving data and generating reports using AuxData, AuxInfo, the Aux Directory, and the tools developed by the Measurement Directorate. 

Uniform of the day per Coast Guard C-School Directive – Tropical Blue (TROPS) for Instructors and Students. If student does not have a complete and proper TROPS Uniform (no dickie slacks, black tennis shoes, etc.) they may not attend Coast Guard funded C-Schools.

Students must bring a Wi-Fi capable laptop computer to use during class (tablets, such as iPads are not acceptable). Loaner computers are NOT available at the C-School - you must bring one with you if you want to attend this class. Prior to class, each student will be given read/write access to the AUXDATA Training Data Base. Before departing home for the C-School, each student must test logging on to AUXDATA and test their ability to generate PDF & CSV reports. In addition, they must complete the pre-class assignment distributed to them.

Upon receiving Travel Orders to attend AUX-10 students must follow the provided instructions to contact the host hotel and secure lodging. Lodging must be paid for using a personal credit card. Students will be reimbursed four to six weeks after completion of the C-School. Commercial air travel must be booked through ADTRAV at 855-576-4781 or as specified on your orders.

Students must attend all sessions, complete all assignments (generating reports and entering data into the Training Data Base) to get credit for the course. Class hours are 0800-1800 daily. Evening sessions are available as needed. 

NOTE: AUX-10 is an intense learning experience. Only students attending all sessions, and completing all assignments will be given credit for completion of AUX-10. IS officers need to have an understanding of all mission activity and codes, proper use of forms, certifications and re-certifications, and other general knowledge to be an effective subject matter expert. One of the most important contributions of the IS officer is to assist elected and appointed officers to access information about member activities so that they can recognize trends and changes in order to make informed decisions regarding training and planning in their programs. 

Due to the high level of knowledge required to be an effective IS officer, it is highly recommended that attendees have a minimum of 2-years membership in the Auxiliary prior to attending this C-School. Please consider length of time in the Auxiliary, mission experience, and basic computer skills before applying for this class. 

Due to the volume of information attendees are asked to assimilate in the Aux-10 course we have initiated a mentoring program for members wishing to attend AUX-10.  Please contact your SO-IS or DSO-IS for further information.
