Security Levels


Training Center Cape May is the fifth largest base in the Coast Guard and the sole accession point for the entire enlisted workforce. The base is located in one of the most exceptional areas on the East Coast. Cape May is a resort destination location for thousands each year and one of only 17 Coast Guard Communities in the nation. 

The staff at Training Center Cape May works to transform America's civilian volunteers into the shipmates of tomorrow serving side by side with us in the Coast Guard.

  • Our Mission:  We transform the recruits of today into the Coastguardsmen of tomorrow.
  • Our Vision:  The Coast Guard's Hometown:  Recognized for being the best place to live, work and visit in the Coast Guard, and for setting the standard of professionalism and selfless service... one graduate at a time.

The journey of every enlisted Coastguardsman begins when they step off the bus in Cape May.  The values and ideals they acquire in recruit training will shape their future and the future of the Coast Guard for decades to come.  We at Training Center Cape May work together every day, developing the brightest possible future for the Coast Guard.
