Basic Training in the Coast Guard requires you to be physically fit, mentally ready and prepared for a transformation. You will be doing and learning so much for the eight weeks of basic training that the more you already know and the more physically fit you are the easier it will be. Starting before you report for training will reduce your stress and enable you to succeed.
Before you arrive for basic training, you need to prepare yourself physically, mentally and financially. Make sure you also have the right clothing and supplies, and most importantly-The Right Attitude!
