Auxiliary Core Training (AUXCT) - AUXCT Replaces AUXMT: Pursuant to provisions of 14 U.S. Code 831 which deals with Coast Guard Auxiliarists’ assignment and performance of duties, the Coast Guard is required to ensure that its Auxiliarists are appropriately trained, tested, and found competent before they can be assigned to duty. Over the past few years, the Coast Guard has required Auxiliarists to complete a battery of specified training courses to impart a minimum baseline of organizational familiarity and expectation in support of this requirement.  This has been comparable to the placement of similar requirements on all other Coast Guard active duty, reserve, and civilian personnel. The value of this training has formed the core of every Auxiliarist’s pledge and commitment to support the Coast Guard and abide by its governing policies. Based upon the insight and advocacy of Auxiliary leadership at national and district levels,  this training shall hereafter be referred to as Auxiliary Core Training (AUXCT) in lieu of Auxiliary Mandated Training (AUXMT). Appropriate changes to AUXDATA, the Auxiliary Learning Management System (AUXLMS), and related training materials to reflect this training program title change have begun.
