Paratus Report: April 2017, Episode 1

The newest episode of the Coast Guard Paratus Report is now live! The Paratus Report is a workforce news program focused at keeping Coast Guard members informed of what’s happening throughout their Coast Guard. The episode will air monthly on the official Coast Guard YouTube channel, and right here on Coast Guard All Hands with additional information.

This month’s episode covers the following:

General Mandated Training  (GMT) Reduction

As part of the Human Capital Strategy, Coast Guard’s Force Readiness Command has reduced the number of GMT courses from eight to five! That’s more than a 40 percent reduction and less than half the amount of time!

Bystander Intervention Training

The Coast Guard’s Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Program is launching a new Bystander Intervention Training (BIT). The training is voluntary, but command’s are authorized to grant mandated training credit to those who take BIT. For more information, view the recent ALCOAST or contact your local Sexual Assault Response Coordinators (SARCs).


2017 State of the Coast Guard Address

In case you missed it, on March 16th, the Commandant shared his way-ahead for the Coast Guard in the annual State of the Coast Guard Address. You can see highlights from the address on the All Hands blog.
