Coast Guard Auxiliary Training Department
AUXLAMS A (June) and AUXLAMS B (July) in Miami, FL were added to the course offerings below on 7 March 2012.

Students may now apply for the Coast Guard Auxiliary Leadership and Management School (AUXLAMS), scheduled to be held in a variety of locations around the country.  The course is based on the Leadership Competencies, which lay the foundation for all leadership skills necessary to successful leadership in the Coast Guard and the Auxiliary. This is a facilitated and interactive course dealing with Self Awareness, Motivation, Strategic Leadership, Team Building, Ethics, Conflict Management and Performance Problem Solving. AUXLAMS is the foundation course of the Auxiliary Leadership Continuum.

The course is divided into two parts (AUXLAMS-A and AUXLAMS-B), with each being taught in 2 ½ day sessions at district locations arranged by the respective districts. Auxiliary personnel currently active in any leadership position, including those enrolled in Auxiliary University Programs (AUP), are eligible for and encouraged to take this course. 

AUXLAMS is similar in content and purpose to the LAMS course taught to active duty Coast Guardsman, but is designed to be taught in two parts and to specifically address the unique challenges of leading volunteers.  The video below offers an overview of the LAMS experience.
