The % card is a wild card or unknown.

Training Record Report: Default date is current year only, so if you want to see all training you must backdate the year, prior to requesting report.
Certifications Report: Shows status of all competencies for each individual.
In this case the member is in REWK as IT and must complete workshop prior to 30 Sep to remove the flag or will change to REYR on 1 Jan.
The member is in REYR status for both Boat Crew and VE and must be re-certified prior to removing the flags. The VE REYR is showing year 2000 and should purge when end-of-year process is run. (After 5 years-must re-qualify)

After entering the date/time group, each block has a List of Values. The block will auto fill if there is only one choice for the activity you are entering.
For the first entry, Trailer was chosen; therefore Status and Sub-Activity will auto fill because there are no choices.
For Mission, use the same as the mission the vessel was trailered to be used, in this case a Marine Safety Patrol. Mission is AUXMP and Sub-Mission is Safety.
Operations Code: The member is to annotate in remarks if there is an Operations Code applicable to the mission.
All ordered missions for the CG should show an OPCON for the station worked with or the orders issuing agency.Default is your Auxiliary District/Region.

Complete EOM one time for Activity Date and if there are any changes to missions cancel this screen when it comes up.
Complete any un-shaded blocks.
Unless you have a SAR OPS Mission, Assists are always “Zero”.
Choose the Lead from appropriate flotilla, crew (Non-Lead) not required for a radio patrol.
Same procedure as we just completed for a boat and radio. Default is Unit, change to Aircraft, and Query for Unit or Tail Number.
It has been suggested that every mission start and end with an On-Deck Standby mission. This will cover the ground time for pre-check, taxi and re-fueling. ABN time should only include in-the-air hours.
This screen would have come up five times for this activity. Be sure to cancel all but one of them.
When using On Deck, the Status will not auto fill. The first position is “B” and the second digit is the number of hours before plane can be air borne.
The Sub-Activity for OD would be STBY (in this case) but it could be a stop for ground training.
For the OD activity, it would be SAR for mission and Standby for sub-mission. (Note the mission numbers in ( ) after each description. This should match the mission showing on the 7030.)For the ABN mission, it would be AUXMP and a different sub-mission screen would come up.
Location, Assists, Patrol Status, and type Waters should be filled in. If it were a SAR OPS Mission, then the SAR Details would be filled in also.
The pilot will be Lead and the others on board would be Non-Lead or Trainee. In this case not sure of the spelling of Caponigro, so used a wild card (%) to find it.
Unit Missions are everything that is not done in an Auxiliary Facility.Select the Unit that you want to enter activities. If the event you are entering was Division sponsored rather than flotilla sponsored, the SO-IS should enter it in the Division Unit. If it was a district sponsored event the DSO-IS should enter it.
Here are some samples of the different Unit Missions.When entering the final class for a PE course you also need to enter an EOC transaction. No Crew Assignment and no hours are to be reported on the EOC.
Every PE Class needs an EOC, submitted after the final test. This reports the total enrolled and total graduated, under 17, and state the course was taught in. NOTE: Hours are grayed out.
Majority of Unit Missions only need to have the hours entered, then tab to un-shade SAVE and click SAVE.
If you have someone from out of your division, click on Select Flotilla and you will be able to pick from any flotilla in the nation. (Alternate method use Filter, see next slide.)
In lieu of Select Flotilla, you have a choice of Filter, to find by Member ID, Last Name, or Unit Number.
Earlier we did an IT Workshop. Any workshop is same procedure. This is a TCT. After entering the Activity infor-mation for a MT mission (which credits IT Hours to LEAD, and gives hours to Trainees for attending,) then go to Tasks and select TCT, then to Task Capture.
Enter the Instructor’s last name, number of hours for the class, then move the Eligible participants from the left to right with the >>, and SAVE.
