CAPT
Command Assignment Preparatory Training (CAPT)
CAPT Course Mission
This four-day course provides Commanding Officers and Officers-in-Charge with leadership and administrative tools to successfully perform as a unit leader within the Coast Guard organization.

CAPT Scope
Commandant has mandated all Commanding Officers and Officers-in-Charge shall receive command training to ensure alignment with Coast Guard leadership principles, organizational goals, and administrative practices. While Afloat, Sector, and Boat Forces units have established and curriculum-approved command cadre courses, other Coast Guard commands did not. The Command Assignment Preparation Training (CAPT) was developed to fill that void. The course is convened multiple times annually.
 

The fundamental course objectives are to prepare Commanding Officers and Officers-in-Charge in the pay grades of E-7 to O-6 to safely and effectively conduct Coast Guard missions at their assigned unit while fostering a positive workforce environment. The course content revolves around three main themes:  

  • Command and Leadership
  • Command Climate
  • Mission Support
