Direct Access Competency Dictionary Update

By LT Chase Mercer, CG-1B1, Future Force Project Division, USCG Headquarters (CG-1B1)

T​he Excel iconDirect Access Competency Dictionary (file in MS Excel format) (a spreadsheet which shows all authorized competency codes and descriptions) has been updated by Commandant (CG-1B-1).

Changes made since last update (30 November) are hi-lighted in blue text on the spreadsheet. 

  • 1 Competencies created 
  • 0 Competencies modified 
  • 0 Competencies inactivated 

These are the changes we (COMDT CG-1B1) were able to get into Direct Access Prior to the Limited Access Period after completion of a large project, over 8,000 position manipulations.  We currently have several Competency Creation and a few Modifications that will be completed as soon as the DA Limited Access Period is over.  I can have the exact number of these updates shortly after DA Limited Access is over, as it will depend on any additional Program Approvals we have in at the first available date to access DA.  With that, we plan on doing another update/release of the dictionary at that time to get these changes out as soon as possible.
