The over-arching purpose of this course is to enable Recruiters to more effectively recruit: that is, to reach out into a given community and encourage the best prospective Coast Guard members to join, not to simply be content with or rely upon only those individuals who seek out the Recruiter.
The course instructors more closely resemble coaches than teachers…their purpose is to improve each individual student’s abilities to locate, evaluate, and to persuasively communicate with prospective Coast Guard members.
There is a significant amount of out-of-class assignments, both individual and group based. Some assignments take place over weekends and or holidays. Weekly exams are cumulative in nature. You will be required to do are several oral presentations, ranging from formal to impromptu, along with various role-playing scenarios, all which are videotaped for student, peer, and instructor critiques. Students will observe various stages of Recruit Training (Boot Camp) during they stay.
This Recruiter Course provides training in public speaking and listening skills, prospecting and marketing, salesmanship, benefit knowledge, recruit preparation and motivation, recruiting concepts, and applicant processing. The course is group-paced, and the schedule is flexible and responsive to the needs and dynamics of each particular class. Check the class schedule for the next convening.
