REYR indicates that you did
not complete your Currency Maintenance, Underway Hours, or
Checks (i.e., Vessel Exams), depending on the Competency
Certified for the previous or previous years. REWK indicates
that you did not complete the appropriate Workshop (if
required for that year) or TCT.
To become re-certified, first check the AUXMAN. For Crewmember or Coxswain, additional requirements are found on the back side of the current year Currency Maintenance Form. The first thing you should do is complete 8 hours underway as a "TRAINEE." This information must be entered in AUXDATA as "TRAINEE." Otherwise you will not receive credit for it. Once that is done, an Email (or land line) must be sent to DIRAUX (preferably Charles Claytor) and notify us that this REYR task has been completed and entered in AUXDATA. DIRAUX will verify that the "TRAINEE" hours have been entered in AUXDATA. DIRAUX will then re-set your competency to "CERTIFIED." This will allow you to complete the remaining REYR tasks and complete your yearly Currency Maintenance to include 8 hours underway as "LEAD" or "NON-LEAD" depending on your competency.
If you are in REWK, you only need to complete the task you are deficient in and notify DIRAUX that the task has been completed and entered in AUXDATA. DIRAUX will re-certify you at that time without additional requirements.
If you are REYR in competencies like Vessel Examiner or Instructor, you need to complete the required vessel exams or instructor hours as "TRAINEE" and have them entered into AUXDATA. Once that is done, notify DIRAUX that the REYR tasks have been completed and entered in AUXDATA. Your competency will then be re-certified. This will allow you to complete your yearly required currency maintenance vessel exams or instructor hours for your competency.
Currency maintenance and Activity Reports should be entered by your SO or FSO-IS. DIRAUX enters only 5th Year certification for Crewmember and Coxswain. On occasion and depending on the situation, DIRAUX may enter your Currency Maintenance or Activity Report. However, the correct procedure is to use your IS officers for these tasks.

Leadership courses taken now include AUXLAM (weekend format) or LAMS (weeklong Active Duty class). Neither is AUXLEA. AUXLEA is no longer available.
Completion of AUXLAM or LAMS is noted as a training task (not a certification) in AUXDATA. When searching for it, remember the training reports default to the 1st day of the current year and therefore classes taken in previous years will not show up unless the start date on the report is changed.
