    I've already finished these processes:
    1. Talked with recruiter.
    2. Passed the auxiliary entry test.
    3. Have my boating license.
    4. Turned in my test and completed forms to the recruiter.
    5. Recieved email for my online auxiliary training at:

    Whats the next process that I need to do to get sworn in, get my ID, and get my Auxiliary Employee ID number so I can do training off the Coast Guard Auxiliary website and C-School online website?

     I know I need to do the training which I will do right away.
    I just want to know what will happen next and how I do get to the next step?

    Once your packet is turned in to your FSO-HR, they will get it submitted and processed. During the time you are waiting for your member number, you can begin working on your mandated training. About three weeks later, you should receive a letter with your member number. At this point, you can order your uniform and continue completing your mandated training as well as begin to work on the qualifications you are interested in. Many of the qualifications require someone to sign off on them as you compete them so you will need to talk to your FSO-MT for help in getting paired up with a mentor for sign-offs. 

    Once your background check is completed, your status in AUXDATA will change from AP to IQ, BQ or AX. At that point you can submit your request for an ID card. Your FSO-PB will need to take a headshot of you to submit with your form. The background check can take anywhere from 6 months to 18 months. The Commandant has committed to shortening that time. Mine took 6 months. 

    As far as being sworn in, your FC will get notified when they can do that. I was just sworn in this month and I've been in for over a year. Hopefully, it won't take that long for you.
