    Does anyone have an idea of when the next patforswa solicitation will be? I really want to apply. Someone told me they won't pick married people, but someone from my unit is going, and he is married with kids. What are the chances for a nonrate to be accepted? Recommendations? I looked up the requirements and am confident I could easily obtain a command endorsement, and meet all the PT requirements. What is life like for a nonrate there? The work day? Thanks for any info!

    Won't pick married people? That's a negative. I've seen married people get picked up a number of times. Nonrates are a little more desired of a position, I can tell you that. Don't they still require gun quals? That can be tougher to get depending on what unit you're at. Sorry, can't help on the day to day life, only know PO and Officers that have went.

    I'm at a unit where there are GMs, so i could hopefully get those quals if needed. My spouse is not thrilled with the idea, but I could get her to come around to it.

    Do you guys have a range? It's not a simple process anymore. It can take up to 3 days for thr new course of fire. You might want to get that process started

    The gun qualifications, either pistol or m16, are required prior to applying. They do not PCS dependants over there with you.

    The solicitations are usually in April and September. Having BTM would be highly desirable.

    It is definately something to talk extensively with your spouse about. Your work life/home life go hand-in-hand. You'll be gone for longer than a year, because of training.

    You can look at previous messages or solicitations so that you know exactly what they've looked for in the past. Go to cgportal, general messages, 2017, then alcoasts or algenl
    Take what you like and leave the rest behind.

    Non-rate jobs are about the same as stateside cutters. On cutters, non-rates get inport OOD, AT/FP. FN get EOW and SN get Lookout and QMOW. Also, they can get Boat Crew and BTM. Shore side is a little easier. They are required just AT/FP. Shore side non-rates mostly work for deck or engineering departments. I have seen SN work for engineering and FN in deck.
