RBS VISITATION PROGRAM
The Program Visitation effort revolves around not only working with the sites where recreational boating enthusiasts gather, but also working directly with those members of the boating public. By first establishing a working relationship with the partners who range from marinas, marine supply retail stores to other sites where boaters congregate, where we set the stage for distribution of boating safety literature to the public.
Further emphasis to meet the boaters while at these sites can broaden the coverage of educating the recreational boating community on safe boating practices. When combined with providing information on boating safety classes, assisting the partners in setting up and conducting safety seminars, and one-on-one discussions with boaters, we can get maximum coverage in promoting boating safety through the Program Visitation effort.
How does an Auxiliary member get qualified?
STEP 1: Take the on-line exam with a passing grade of 90.
STEP 2: With the assistance of a qualified program visitor as your mentor, perform two mentored visits.
STEP 3: Complete the documentation required to provide proof of passing the PV exam and the mentored visits.
STEP 4: Furnish that documentation to your FSO-IS for submission to DIRAUX. Your Flotilla Commander and/or ADSO-PV (Assistant District Staff Officer-Program Visitation) has a copy of the requirements along with the certification form letter to document your completion of the requirements. To stay qualified, you must complete a minimum of four visits annually.
What assistance is available to you as a PV? Each region of District 7 has an ADSO-PV. They are there to assist you in setting up special major events. Each Flotilla has a Flotilla Staff Officer-Program Visitation (FSO-PV). They are there to assist you locally with PV issues and support for special events. Your Flotilla has several staff officers (FSO’s Materials, Vessel Examiner, Public Education and Public Affairs) who can provide support in obtaining literature, scheduling you to participate in Flotillas boating safety events, etc.
