Flotilla What's New
Safe Boating During Social Distancing

AUXDATA to AUXDATA II Transition Notice

IMPORTANT NOTICE:

For the next few weeks, during the transition between AUXDATA and AUXDATA II:
  • Exams completed in the NTC since 30 March 2020 will be entered into the new AUXDATA II system once it is online and will continue at regular intervals.

    The AuxDirectory databases will resume receiving updates when the new AUXDATA II system is online.

    Courses completed through AUXLMS and the Moodle Online Classroom will be entered into the new AUXDATA II system once it is online and will continue at regular intervals.

    For our Flotilla - Several officers came together to setup temporary tracking of your member training accomplishments until AUXDATA II is up, working properly, and training is provided. There is some confusion on where to send your completion certificates and depending on what you are sending, different officers are receiving certificates. We want to be sure that you are given credit for any training you do, whether it be CORE training, FEMA training or any other online training. Effective immediately any certificates or proof of training of any kind should be sent to this email address: auxtrak21@gmail.com

    We have setup a tracking system that will record all of your accomplishments in one place along with your EMPLID, credential and date of submission. This will be tracked by our Member Training Officer, Dick Cobb and certificates will be forwarded to the proper destination when appropriate. NOTE: Please do not send certificates directly to Como Belmore. She prefers that they flow through the Member Training officer.

    AUXDATA II will have new training offerings and means of tracking, so we expect this to be an interim solution.

    To submit training outcomes:

    1. Be sure to give your EMPLID
    2. Attach any completion certificates or screen dumps as evidence.
    3. Give date
    of Completion
    4. Email to
    auxtrak21@gmail.com
    5. Acknowledgement of receipt will be sent to you.

Downtime Training Available

Now might be a good time to focus on your own personal and professional advancement in the Auxiliary. Here are three options for you to consider:

Auxiliary Patrols (AuxPat)
This course provides the knowledge necessary to perform safe, effective and efficient safety and regatta patrols. It covers information on how safety and regatta patrols are organized and conducted. It also provides a review of crew duties, communications protocols, safety and survival equipment, and health hazards to the crew.

The course is especially relevant for Boat Crew, but open to all.

This will be a self-study class. Students will be expected to read the Student Study Guide and answer questions at the end of each chapter. Instructors will be available for 2 to 3 virtual media sessions during which important aspects of the course will covered and questions answered. These on-line sessions will be scheduled for mid to late May and mid-June. A proctored test will be available once the Auxiliary is authorized to resume activities.
Credit for the course will be given upon successful completion of the proctored test.
AUXPAT is an elective course counting as one credit toward the AUXOP qualification. Seven credits are required to attain AUXOP status.

You can find the Student Study Guide here: http://cgaux.org/training/AUXOP/AUXPAT/AUXPAT_Student.pdf

Auxiliary Instructor
Completing the Instructor Development Course allows members to participate in another of the primary missions of the Coast Guard Auxiliary. The IT certification will allow you to participate in the promotion of recreational boating safety through Public Education and to instruct in the many Auxiliary Member Training courses. The course is conducted by an IT mentor working with the trainee to pass an open book exam and successfully complete Performance Qualification System (PQS) tasks. Following the completion of PQS tasks, the trainee will be required to conduct training events in accordance with the IDC course material. A certified mentor instructor will evaluate the event presentations.
The course introduces the 14 Instructor Competencies as defined by the International Board of Standards for Training, Performance, and Instruction (IBSTPI). It offers procedures and tools that can best be used when conducting a training event, and it provide opportunities for participants to practice using tools and techniques in actual training situations.
Information on becoming an Auxiliary Instructor can be found at:
http://edept.cgaux.org/pdf/IDC-Student-Course-Book.pdf
Note that the PQS cannot be completed until the Auxiliary is authorized to resume normal operations.
If you are interested in becoming an Instructor, please contact:
Mentor Instructor Everett Henry fsope21c@uscgauxsoportlandme.com
                                   Sea Scouts 

Sea Scouting
is the Coast Guard Auxiliary's official youth program and is a Boy Scouts of America program for young men and women, ages 14 (or 13 years of age and completed eighth grade) through 20. Sea Scouts provide a program for religious, fraternal, educational, and other community organizations to use for effective character, citizenship, and mental and personal fitness training for youth. As part of this training, Sea Scouts are expected to develop personal religious values, learn the principles of American heritage and government, and acquire skills that will prepare them to become successful adults.

The advancement scheme for Sea Scouts places an initial emphasis on nautical skills before encouraging the youth to take a major role in planning activities in the unit. Young men and women ages fourteen through twenty who are willing to abide by the requirements of BSA membership, including agreeing to live by the ideals expressed in the Scout Oath and Law and Sea Promise are eligible to join a Sea Scout Ship. Ships are administered by volunteers with the assistance and support of some paid professional staff.

As of September 2018 all Sea Scouts and Sea Scout leaders are automatically Associate Members of the Coast Guard Auxiliary Association unless they choose to opt out. Any Sea Scout who is at least 14 years old or Sea Scout leader may also choose to become full members of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary by following the normal application process.

For more information please contact our Flotilla Staff Officer Auxiliary Scout - Ian Riddell
