CAREER FIELDSWe offer Officer Programs in a variety of fields including:
As an officer in the Coast Guard, you'll get opportunities unmatched by any offered by an entry-level civilian job. For instance, as a Coast Guard aviator, you may find yourself taking charge during a life-saving search and rescue mission, or leading missions against drug smugglers or illegal aliens.
- command, control, communications
- computer & information technologies
As an engineering officer, you could be overseeing the design, construction and maintenance of Coast Guard vessels, merchant vessels or shore facilities.
Or, prove to us that you have what it takes to become an environmental manager, and you may end up protecting the environment from corporate oil and chemical spills.
There's one thing you can definitely be sure of: because the Coast Guard is the smallest of all our nation's armed forces, once you're a commissioned officer, your leadership skills, experience and management abilities will be called upon often.
