Elevated privileges now have a one-year shelf life before they expire (1 year after permissions have been granted). After 1 year, those privileges will have to be reinstated after completing the newest training mLINQS PCS travel application (uscg.mil), certifying the training completion and sending the PPC Customer Care template from our webpage”.
