Coxswain Standards and JRCC

Part of the 12 hour Coxswain Standards dev. session
Part of the 12 hour Coxswain Standards dev. session
It was an amazing yet busy weekend! Meeting with the President and executive Director of the CCGA About the SAR module. Taking a tour of JRCC and meeting the OIC, and Superintendent of SAR (who we knew from ISAR) and finally working for About 20 hours on the Coxswain Training Standards with the ARTE team...

We started first thing Thursday Morning and traveled to Victoria to have lunch with our friend from the CCGA office (mmmm Sushi) the afternoon was meetings About the CCGA web site: and more specifically the SAR module (as I have so frequently mentioned here in the past) That night we stayed at the Laurel Point Inn (which was awesome)

Friday morning we were off to JRCC for a tour and to meet with their IT manager to look at integrating the SAR module into the RCC GIS system (how cool is that!) we took some virtual tours inside JRCC and were able to watch as the CCGA unit 5 was tasked out on a call - this was fascinating for us as we are basically working for JRCC when we go out on the Boat - being there and speaking with the controllers really provided the final look at the complete SAR picture (apart from looking at all the cool toys they get to play with) While we were there we got to meet the OIC and the Superintendent of SAR (John Palliser - or JP as we got to know him when he was cheering us on at ISAR)

Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday was all ARTE working groups to finish development opf the CCGA Coxswain Training Standards. This was a very intense session with Saturday lasting almost 12 hour solid in the conference room hashing through the individual skill requirements of the standard. It still needs some final; tweaking and proofing - but we accomplished an amazing amount over the weekend and now have a much better idea of where the Coxswains in the CCGA need to be moving.

An interesting experience this weekend was our accommodations in the Chief and Petty Officers Mess on the Pacific Navy Base - not the most luxurious accommodations - but interesting to get a feel for the experience.
