USPS Member Joined USCGAUX and Wants to Perform VSCs

Question: I have a past US Power Squadrons member who has now joined the Auxiliary and wants to continue performing VSCs What are the protocols to allow this?

Answer:He or she would need to study the materials on our training page and take the VE exam at as it is not the same as the exam as the US Power Squadrons uses. Then perform the five VSCs under one of our certified VEs and then follow the requirement in your District to have him or her certified. The big difference is the Facilities Inspections requirements which you might want to point out.
