2 2008 QE Workshop USCG Auxiliary 1st District Northern Region 2 Welcome! Over the next few hours, we will look at our past activities and the road ahead, we will review some key areas that the field suggests need training, and discuss some issues that we can only cover as a whole group. Your facilitator: Ned Kroeker, CQEC

3 2008 QE Workshop USCG Auxiliary 1st District Northern Region 3 Focus Today on… …Auxiliary Operations Policy, and the Maritime SAR Assistance Policy as it relates to Auxiliary  Needed for any checkrides, and for dockside examinations  QEs should be highly knowledgeable  Station QEs may not be aware from the Auxiliary perspective

4 2008 QE Workshop USCG Auxiliary 1st District Northern Region 4 Why the focus?  Currency checkride candidates need to be quizzed to insure knowledge needed for their certification level … old habits die hard, especially in the Auxiliary (New coxswain candidates now take written test)  Consistent quizzing needs to be performed across the district for all candidates

22 BCQP Process Review … and some topics that members might ask you about Qualification Examiners 1 st District Northern Region March 2008

23 2008 QE Workshop USCG Auxiliary 1st District Northern Region 23 BCQP Process (in one page!)  Member trains on all tasks, performs for mentor signoff  Checkride checklist verified  QE performs dockside examination  QE evaluates underway checkride  QE reports results to CQEC  CQEC validates all requirements, enters into AUXDATA, notifies OTO for letter/certificate to member, confirms to QE and member.

24 2008 QE Workshop USCG Auxiliary 1st District Northern Region 24 BCQP 3-Year Currency  QE evaluates underway checkride  QE reports results to CQEC  CQEC validates all requirements, enters into AUXDATA, confirms to QE and member. There is no formal letter.

25 2008 QE Workshop USCG Auxiliary 1st District Northern Region 25 “QE reports results to CQEC”  Send or postal mail directly to Ned Kroeker, CQEC  Candidate name, Member #, date(s) of underway checkride, vessel(s) used for underway checkride, tow target vessel(s) used, statement that candidate has a positive recommendation for certification  Don’t delay after checkride

26 2008 QE Workshop USCG Auxiliary 1st District Northern Region 26 QE Expectation  You’ll get an confirmation when a candidate has been processed (as will the candidate! [if they have a valid recorded in AUXDATA] )  If you don’t receive a confirmation within 2 weeks, follow up: first with CQEC, then with OTO  Normal response time is hours after receipt of QE notification

27 2008 QE Workshop USCG Auxiliary 1st District Northern Region 27 Candidate Status  Entry of BCQP certification status into AUXDATA represents OTO certification. POMS will have that info within 24 hours after AUXDATA entry  Candidate may act under orders using certification as of the AUXDATA entry and POMS receipt of that entry  Candidate does not need to wait for printed letter and certificate to wend their way through Auxiliary channels

28 2008 QE Workshop USCG Auxiliary 1st District Northern Region 28 REYR handling  REYR removal can take more time to process  Required underway hours as trainee (if needed) must have gone through POMS and AUXDATA and be fully entered  All needed items (including underway time) WILL be verified  Even if checkride was final element, it may take calendar time for U/W hours to get into system locally

29 2008 QE Workshop USCG Auxiliary 1st District Northern Region 29 REYR handling  If REYR status involves a checkride, QE reporting of checkride status will trigger review of REYR status  All other REYR items require formal request (AFTER the item(s) is/are entered into AUXDATA) to the OTO by the candidate’s Flotilla Commander  Sometimes the CQEC will notice the completion of requirements and will take early action on REYR, but don’t depend on this!

30 2008 QE Workshop USCG Auxiliary 1st District Northern Region 30 Please Avoid REYR  Always emphasize to members that it is FAR, FAR easier for everybody to fulfill requirements rather than do “makeup”. A lot of people must spend volunteer time to handle REYR updates for a single member, time that could be spent on other Auxiliary activities.

31 2008 QE Workshop USCG Auxiliary 1st District Northern Region 31 Temporary Status for Health  If a member won’t be able to fulfill requirements due to a limited duration health issue, they can request a temporary deferral through the OTO.  This only delays, not eliminates, requirements, and suspends their current certification.  This should be done in ADVANCE of REYR, not after-the-fact.

32 2008 QE Workshop USCG Auxiliary 1st District Northern Region 32 Your Own QE Status (Auxiliary QEs)  Maintain your Coxswain qualification (watch your NavRules expiration!)  Maintain your Instructor qualification  Take 8-Hour TCT class every 2 years (make sure you indicated “QE” on roster!!)

33 2008 QE Workshop USCG Auxiliary 1st District Northern Region 33 Underway Time for QEs (Auxiliary QEs)  On QE underway missions, you should be listed on the patrol orders as crew…but you should not be part of the minimum crew count.  If you choose to submit separate missions for Category 7C, QE Underway, you must make sure the SO-IS for the vessel involved in the patrol manually removes your name from the AUXDATA crew reporting.

34 2008 QE Workshop USCG Auxiliary 1st District Northern Region 34 The “I can’t get Patrol Orders in POMS” Question  This nearly always means a certification problem or a facility inspection problem in AUXDATA  The underlying problem must be fixed in AUXDATA, not POMS  This requires DIRAUX-staff resolution, not an Auxiliary IS issue or a Sector Ops issue …BUT… Auxiliary IS staff can help in identifying the underlying problem  Once fixed, it will still take up to 24 hours to get into POMS
