TRAIN: A ‘how-to’ guide for succeeding at any assessment

Afloat Training Group San Diego recently was on board Coast Guard Cutter Mellon from Seattle for their Command Assessment of Readiness and Training. CART is an overall assessment of the cutter’s on board training teams and its materiel and administrative readiness for operations and training. ATG San Diego had the opportunity to see how the ship’s crew prepared for the assessment, implemented necessary changes and succeeded with minimal discrepancies. While ATG usually goes on board cutters to assess, train and give recommendations for improvements, this time we learned a few things from Mellon’s crew we’d like to share with the fleet!
