40 AuxLMS FAQ Q: Where do I find my “Username”?
A: Your “Username” is your unique, primary address in AUXDATA (the first one shown in your Member Detail page in the AuxDirectory). It cannot be the same as used by any other Auxiliarist. Often shared addresses occur in family membership. For the AUXLMS, each member in a family must have a unique address.

41 AuxLMS FAQ Q: How do I know if I have an account on AUXLMS? A: Go to read the warning statement and click thru to the next page. Since this is your first attempt to log on, you will need a password. Click on the “I forgot my password” link. Enter your address as your “Username.” If you have an account, your temporary password will be sent to that address. If not, it will give you a message saying “Error. Username not found.”

42 AuxLMS FAQ Q: If I don’t have an account, how do I get one? A: Make sure you are not sharing an address with any other Auxiliary Member (Search on your in AUXOFFICER). If your address is unique, and it didn’t work as your “Username,” submit a ticket to If your username is not unique, see duplicate address question below.

43 AuxLMS FAQ Q: I have an address that I share with another member. What do I do? A: You or the other member(s) will need to obtain a new address and use this address as your primary address with the Auxiliary. This change can be made via the online 7028 form or by simply providing this information to your flotilla’s Information Services Officer (FSO-IS).

44 AuxLMS FAQ Q: What happens if I change my primary address in AUXDATA via the 7028 form?  Will I continue to be able to use AUXLMS? A: If you change your address in AUXDATA, the change might take a week or so before the change is reflected in AUXLMS. During this period you will still need to log in via the previous address until the new address (“Username”) is transferred into AUXLMS. 

45 AuxLMS FAQ Q: What is the difference between and A: Though both platforms are Learning Management Systems that allow the Auxiliary to manage your learning activities, AUXLMS contains USCG Active Duty content that cannot be transferred outside of the AUXLMS platform. The “Mandated Training” courses are on the AUXLMS.

46 AuxLMS FAQ Q: I have taken a course. How does that information get to AUXDATA? A: Each of the Mandated training classes as well as ICS 210, when successfully completed, will send an update to AUXDATA. These updates occur once a week on Mondays. In AUXLMS, you can log on and click on “My Account” and then “My Transcript” and see, at any time, the courses that you have completed. It is these entries that are passed to AUXDATA.

47 AuxLMS FAQ Q: I have taken a Coast Guard “Gold” course on the AUXLMS, why doesn’t it appear in my AUXDATA Training Record Report? A: AUXDATA only contains courses/exams that relate to an Auxiliary qualification or requirement (such as Mandated Training).  The bulk of the Coast Guard “Gold” courses are optional, and are not recorded in AUXDATA.

48 AuxLMS FAQ Q: How do I print out a course completion certificate for an AUXLMS course? A: Unlike the National Testing Center (NTC), the AUXLMS does not provide course completion certificates. Simply print out your "My Transcript" (see above) if you should need to provide proof of completion.  If a certificate is referenced in an AUXLMS course, simply ignore it.

49 AuxLMS FAQ Q: How do I verify that my course completions have been processed? A: You can check your course completions two ways           1. Contact your Flotilla IS Officer and have them review your Training Record Report in AUXDATA with you.           2. Go to AUXINFO and look for your information there. (Allow sufficient time for the data to get to AUXINFO from AUXDATA.)

50 AuxLMS FAQ Q: I just completed a course, but it says it will "expire" in a couple months or so. Why would the course expire? A: That "expiration" is related to access to the course. Access to the course will expire in 90 days. If you complete the course, that "expiration" is meaningless and should be simply ignored. If you want to take the course again after 90 days, you will need to re-enroll. If you've completed your course, and need proof, print out or download your "My Transcript" (in the "My Account" page).

51 AuxLMS FAQ Q: My Transcript shows Ethics 1, Sexual Assault, and Sexual Harassment as "completed" but under Lesson Success it shows "unknown." What does this mean? That I failed and have to take the courses again? A: Don't worry. All that matters is that a course is completed, and is shown on the Transcript. Ignore "Lesson Success" and "Score" on the transcript. Only course completions (and the source) are sent to the Auxiliary, no scores or anything else. When you complete a course on the AUXLMS, a Coast Guard (not Auxiliary) application, it goes to the AUXLMS Transcript. About a week later, the transcripts are sent to the Auxiliary's information system of record, AUXDATA. (Then a week or so later, it's in AUXINFO.) The AUXLMS transcript, AUXDATA and AUXINFO are considered the official proof of course completion.
