Reserve Workshop

Our Reserve Workshop was created for Reserve members based on inquiries for information and assistance from Reservists throughout the Coast Guard. It is not intended to provide you with an all encompassing background on all Reserve matters, rather, to:

  • Provide you the web links to Coast Guard policies
  • Give you an understanding of procedures, and 
  • Provide you with the skills to apply this information to enter accurate data into Direct Access (DA) that affects your pay and personnel issues.

You will find a comprehensive list of virtual recordings designed to allow you to select topics from an “a la carte” menu to develop your own personal or divisional training programs.
