Operations workshops may be mandated on an annual basis by Commandant (G-OCX) or by the Director. When operations workshops are mandated, the requirements apply to all personnel participating in surface operations and programs requiring them to be aboard surface facilities. Auxiliarists must complete such workshops prior to June 1 of the year in question in order to participate in operational missions. workshop attendance credit remains valid through May 31 of the year following.
The Operations Workshop is published by the National Response Department, Operations Programs and Educational Outreach Division. It is typically an optional workshop and provides some guidance on Surface operations safety and procedures that can be used as a refresher at the Division or Flotilla level. Some Districts may make this a required course for their Coxswains and or Crew certified members at the local level. Check with your FSO-OP for guidance. This workshop can be presented by any qualified Auxiliarist in the surface operations program. The instructor should coordinate with Flotilla FSOs and Division Logistics staff officers for any pertinent local information. Local procedures, known local hazards, etc. are types of things that should be added to this presentation at the local level.
