United States Coast Guard Auxiliary  -  America's Volunteer Lifesavers


Patrol Boat

AUXPAT, the Auxiliary Patrols Specialty course, is focused upon the complete spectrum of operational patrol activities both on the water and in the air.  This includes Safety Patrols, Search and Rescue (SAR), Regatta spectator safety control (powerboat race, sailboat race, rowing race, etc.) and Chart Updating/Aids to Navigation Patrols.

Practical knowledge achieved by the Auxiliary Patrol Specialist, whether on the high seas, the coast areas, lakes and rivers, or local reservoirs engenders a keen awareness of, and response to, emergency situations, without jeopardizing the crew and facility.

You can achieve success as an AUXPAT Specialist by passing a closed book, proctored examination with a score of 75% or better.
