Work with Us: Individuals
We provide a range of services directly to members of our communities.
Vessel Safety Checks: Both the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary and the United States Power Squadrons have certified vessel examiners who will perform a free Vessel Safety Check ("VSC") at your boat, at a time of mutual convenience. There is no charge, and no consequences if you don't pass. Our goal is simply to help make boating as safe as possible for you, your family and your friends, through education. http://wow.uscgaux.info/content.php?unit=V-DEPT&category=i-want-a-vsc
Boating Courses: U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary boating courses provide instruction to boaters at all levels, from the fundamental to the advanced. Our classes are taught by experienced and knowledgeable instructors committed to the highest standards of the U.S. Coast Guard. http://cgaux.org/boatinged/
Join the Auxiliary: When you join the Coast Guard Auxiliary, you could find yourself saving lives, protecting the environment from polluters, guarding our shores, and much more. That's our job – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. That's life in the Coast Guard Auxiliary. We don't just train. We train and perform. Visit our membership pages.
Supporting the Auxiliary: The Coast Guard Auxiliary Association is a national nonprofit organization established in 1957 to support Coast Guard Auxiliary activities. For over 56 years, the Coast Guard Auxiliary Association has conducted the fiscal and business management responsibilities for the Auxiliary including fundraising, partnerships and donations that enable America's Volunteer Lifesavers to accomplish their primary mission responsibility: recreational boating safety. Local volunteers - Local boaters - Local successes. http://cgauxa.org/
