Units: 8
Prerequisite(s): CRU 150 , EPO 210  Must be fully accepted as a candidate in the CMAPPP Program.
This course, the student’s second sea training experience, is mandatory for all fully accepted students in the California Maritime Academy Pre-Commissioning Pilot Program (CMAPPP).

The objectives of the Cadet Training program are to expand the student’s knowledge of Coast Guard operations and missions from the perspective of a junior officer; reinforce academic-year programs and prior training with hands-on experience; develop in an engineering environment the specialized skills and knowledge necessary to become a successful career officer; reinforce in each student professional competence, dedication, commitment, and a sense of service history; provide students experience with the required interaction between chief petty officers and the ward room; and give each student a minimum of 60 days seagoing experience. A comprehensive report is required upon completion of the cruise.
