>Uninspected Towing Vessel (UTV) Just-in Time Orientation Course


The CGD5 Uninspected Towing Vessel Coordinaor, Julio Martinez, completed the basic 5-day course specifically designed for Coast Guard members who are assigned to UTV examiner billets at field units and to fully support the TVBP training initiatives. This course is intended to fill the gap while formal towing vessel training curriculum is being developed. The focus of this course is to train UTV examiners on how to conduct an UTV examination. The course includes instruction on applicable CFRs, policies, best practices and field trips to local UTVs and a shipyard.
