You may have found that completion of many training courses you've attended
outside the Coast Guard (particularly for the engineering ratings) can’t be
entered into TMT or DirectAccess. The only way to ensure there's an
official record of such training is to maintain a training/education record
just as officers do. To do this, complete form
Once you’ve completed the form, take it – with completion certificates, diplomas, etc. from all courses listed – to your Servicing Personnel Office (SPO). There, the YNs will be able to scan and e-mail your documents directly to the Personnel Service Center Military Records Branch (PSC-psd-mr, formerly known as adm-3). If there’s a problem with the documentation submitted, PSC will let your SPO know and you’ll be able to work with the YNs to fix the problem. This systems is capable of tracking and feeding your documents directly into your EI-PDR.
If you have a degree you want entered into DirectAccess, fill out form PPC-2030, attach copies of your diploma and the corresponding transcript, and take it to your SPO or other YN who enters data into DirectAccess.
Your SPO or YN can also enter Graduate Record Exam (GRE), Law School Admission Test (LSAT), and other standardized test scores into DirectAccess. To send such scores directly to PSC-psd-mr – which is highly recommended – follow the instructions outlined on page 19 of the Officer Postgraduate and Advanced Education Application Process Guide. The process is the same for enlisted personnel and officers.
