    first you make crewman and then you go through a PQS or sign off list to then request a board which is a sit down with your command where they ask you questions for 1-8 hours and then a checkride which is you demonstrating that you can drive and make decisions with the command on board running a crew.

    For the average person after they make boat crew, it takes about a year for their first qual.

    Thanks bells!

    The reason I asked is because I'm currently working on the crewman quals. Other bm reservists make it seem really hard or almost impossible for a bm reservist make coxswain.

    It's not hard, it just takes a willingness to put in the time and effort. I would say all of your cox'ns at a PSU are all Reservists, and I've been to STA's where Reserve cox'ns are not unheard of. STA LA-LB has one or two all Reserve boat crews

    It's just going to be you putting the time in. No one is going to hand it to you because a station coxswain is a big deal. It takes an average BM3 about a year to get their first coxn qual when they are active duty. Me personally, for the 47' it took about a year and 3 months from first reporting to the unit to get coxn and I got crew, btm, and BO before the coxn letter. I was there on every off going day getting underway and the last month I was there almost everyday with only 2 days off to get it done.

    It's hard. Your going to have to go in without getting paid to get it done. If it's the same for active and you need to get it to make second then you definitely are going to want to do it.
