5th Northern District Training Events (DTrain)


Members of 5th Nothern District (5NR) will come together on the 2nd weekend of the months of March and September to share our ideas and to attend classroom training sessions.

The next DTRAIN on March 9-11th, 2018 is here. Event registration closed Feb 23rd.

Why should I go to D-Train?

Let us share the thoughts from 5NR DIRAUX, LCDR Taylor.
"You have volunteered to an elite organization, where we ask much from you. Anyone can volunteer, but Coast Guard Auxiliarists are held to a higher standard and in order to be utilized, you will need special skillsets that the training at DTRAIN offers. DTRAIN is not just about the training, but does it in a way where fellowship is everywhere, in an easy atmosphere of camaraderie and friendship, and where recognition takes place."

Some additional thoughts from our Commodore, Barry Kyper.
Opportunity Knocks! Spring D-Train is just around the corner, where else can you receive training that equals that of the finest military force in the country? Where else can you rub elbows with like-minded individuals who volunteer their time and talents to save lives and protect our waterways? Where else can you share information and fellowship with long standing friends from across the district in many venues at this event? Where else can you commune and share your thoughts and ideas with Coast Guard flag officers, National elected officers, your own district leadership and others? D-Train provides all of these opportunities and more. It is knocking on your door, will you open the door to participation or let this outstanding opportunity slip away? Hope to see you there.

Make special note that Hotel, Conference AND AuxLAM-A Registrations require separate arrangements, follow the the information in the Spring 2018 DTrain information packet carefully.
