Direct Access Competency Dictionary Update

united states coast guard

The Direct Access Competency Dictionaryfile in MS Excel format (a spreadsheet which shows all authorized competency codes and descriptions) has been updated by Comdt (CG-1B-1).

Changes made since last update (21 March 2017) are hi-lighted in blue text on the spreadsheet.

  • 4 Competencies created
  • 1 Competency inactivated
  • 3 Competency modified*

    (*) There are 720 competencies with changes in the dictionary (denoted with blue text). While no changes were made in the Direct Access to these competencies, changes were made in the dictionary to properly reflect the status of their mapping to TMT. A lion's share of the modifications were to remove the "Yes" from column M until the mapping in TMT is complete and verified.
