The primary method to take examinations is online via the USCG Auxiliary National Testing Center (http://ntc.cgaux.org/). In order to take online exams, you need an Auxiliary Member Number and Password. Your user ID is simply your member number. Your password is the same Member Zone password.
Several exams require a proctor. All authorized proctors are listed on the National Testing Center - log into the NTC, select the Proctor List tab to see the available proctors in our district. You can also find a public list of our proctors by going to: http://ntc2.cgaux.org/proctors.php?flo=095
ICS 100, 200, 700, and 800 are accepted from accredited emergency agencies. Auxiliary personnel, who need ICS training, should refer to the training subpage for Incident Command found here.
Once you have completed your ICS 100, 200, 700, and 800 training, the testing system will auto-generate an email to you. The US Coast Guard Auxiliary systems are not linked with FEMA or other emergency agencies, so you will need to send that email to the DSO-MT for approval and entry into your USCG Auxiliary master training record in order to get credit.
All personnel may look at their individual training records or request an electronic copy of their records at any time. All members should develop an individual training plan - work with your FSO-MT to access your training records and discuss what type of training you need to meet your development objectives. Typically, Flotilla Staff Officers with access to your training records include: FSO-IS (primary contact), Vice Flotilla Commander, and the Flotilla Commander.
Most active members in the USCG Auxiliary are designated as BQ (basically qualified). When a new member joins the Auxiliary, they are typically designated as AP (Application Pending). Once their HR package clears, they change designation from AP to IQ (Initially Qualified). Upon completion of a USCG approved Boating Safety course (there are multiple types of these courses), the member moves from IQ to BQ status. Members who have completed a boating safety course prior to joining the Auxiliary or during the HR package processing can jump directly from AP to BQ status once their HR package clears.
Personnel who have completed AUXOP requirements are designated as AX or AX2.
