The United States Coast Guard is chartered to be the Guardian of the Citizens of the United States of America, its Waterways, and its delicate and precious Marine Environment. This is no small feat for a force of about 80,000 dedicated and hard working individuals with a mission that large. We, as members of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary, can be a vital part of that mission. This mission has been highlighted by the Commandant of the Coast Guard as Force Multiplication. While there are some parts of the mission we as Auxiliarists cannot perform, specifically direct Law Enforcement and Military Action, we can add our efforts to help the Coast Guard complete its mission and in doing so serve our fellow citizens and country at the same time. An Active Duty or Reserve Coast Guard Member wears the M-Pro device when they have completed the requirements demonstrating competency in at least four areas of the Marine Safety field. To demonstrate this competency in any of their specialization areas, they must complete a program that not only demonstrates their expertise as a subject matter expert, but also documents a level of experience in performing that job over a suitable period of time meeting the US Coast Guard standards. When they achieve this level of performance they are authorized to wear the M-Pro device, it is a recognition, not only of their expertise, but to their service to and dedication to the high standards of the US Coast Guard.

The AUXOP program will be revised to consist of core, leadership, and elective credit elements
in order to give variety to Auxiliarists, increase practical AUXOP relevance to Coast Guard
missions, and better assist the Coast Guard to fulfill needed skill sets.
Under the new program, Auxiliarists will be required to successfully complete a minimum of seven (7) credits from three categories of courses detailed in items (a)-(c) below to receive the AUXOP qualification. This revision will give Auxiliarists more choices to meet program requirements, allow the pursuit of preferred focus areas, and apply credit for ICS training and expertise.
