Competency-Based Members:
Below you will see guidance from the office of Boating Safety regarding completion of the online Risk Management course within the specified deadline of 30 April. Please note that all extensions are approved/denied on a case by case basis. I ask that you encourage completion rather than an extension. Extensions will only be granted for extenuating circumstances. Extensions should be generated by the member and routed through the COL. Member-FSO-SO-DIRAUX Shared Mailbox. The DSO should be copied on this request (via the SO) as well. If there are no FSO's or SO's for the competency-based member, extension requests should be routed via the FC-DC-DIRAUX shared mailbox.  I am not expecting a large number of extensions. I ask that each level of the member's COL either endorse or recommend denial of each extension request.

Elected Officer members:

Please note that all extensions are approved/denied on a case by case basis. I ask that you encourage completion rather than an extension. Extensions will only be granted for extenuating circumstances. Extensions should be generated by the member and routed through the COL.

I am not expecting a large number of extensions. I ask that each level of the member's COL either endorse or recommend denial of each extension request.

Members who have a competency-based requirement and who haven't completed the course by the deadline may request an extension. Extension requests must provide a good reason why the deadline could not be met. Extensions shall not be granted beyond 01 June 2019. If not completed by then, the member will have all of their certified competencies that require completion of the course placed into Required Yearly Not Met (REYR) status, and may neither request nor accept orders. Members shall be taken out of REYR status and have their currencies restored once they've completed the course and all other requirements for the competencies have been met.

Elected and appointed officers who haven't completed the course by 01 Sep 2019 will be ineligible for election and appointment to office. Members who are in two-year offices and haven't completed the course by 01 Sep 2019 shall be subject to removal from office. The Executive Committee (EXCOM) will consult prior to any such removal within the district/region, as will the National Executive Committee (NEXCOM) prior to any such removal at the national level.
