    Hi, I'm considering IT or PS for when I enter the Coast Guard. I have a few questions. How long is the wait to get into the school for either of these jobs? Also, if anyones in the fields, what types of things do you do? Whats a typical work day like? What hours do you usually work? And are there good civilian jobs for after the CG? Maybe something in a government agency? Thanks for the help.

    The PS rating (Port Security) is a reserve only position that is being eliminated, replaced by the ME (Maritime Enforcement) Rating. There is a list of all the "A" schools and their approximate wait times posted at top of this forum under Read First, frequently asked questions.

    If you visit www.gocoastguard.com, it will tell you all about those ratings and their related civilian jobs. The website has a ton of useful information on it.

    You can meet the standard, or you can set the standard. It's your choice.

    Gocoastguard.com doesn't really give you your exact job, but will give you an outline... kinda. Pending on what you choose, some descriptions are more accurate then others. Talk to a few personal in the rate or rates your looking at.
