    Direct quotes from the gocoastguard.com website:
    The Coast Guard Reserve offers many programs to fit your needs:
    Split Training Program - If you are a qualified applicant between the ages of 17 and 30, this program will allow you join the Coast Guard Reserve without interrupting your busy schedule. Basic and Advanced Training take place over two subsequent summers or as availability permits. Between Basic and Advanced Training, Reservists in this program are paid to participate at their assigned unit one weekend per month.

    Petty Officer Selectee Program - If you have no prior service and are between the ages of 17 and 30, you may qualify for this program. You will attend eight weeks of Basic Training at Cape May, NJ, followed by Class 'A' School (advanced training). Class 'A' schools range in length from five weeks to five months depending on career field. Schooling is guaranteed before return to civilian life.

    Accelerated Petty Officer Program - If you are ready to learn an exciting new career field, have a desire to serve and are between the ages of 30 and 35, (we are currently accepting age waivers up to age 39), this may be the program for you. With a minimum of two years college (or equivalent), you will be eligible to enlist at a higher pay grade, attend just two weeks of Reserve Basic Indoctrination, then receive advanced training in a critical field (Boatswain Mate, Machinery Technician, Operation Specialist or Marine Science Technician). Valuable training, an opportunity to serve, and immediate advancement are just a few of this program's many advantages.

    Direct Petty Officer - If you have no prior service and are between the ages of 21 and 35 with a civilian skill relating to a Coast Guard job, you may qualify. Members enlist in the Coast Guard Reserve as Petty Officers with immediate responsibility and increased pay.

    Prior Service Program - If you have prior military experience and are between the ages of 21 and 40, (we are not currently accepting prior service age waivers up to age 45), you may qualify for this program. Depending on specialty and separation code, veterans are eligible for enlistment in the Coast Guard Reserve. Training opportunities are available to members that possess military skills that do not correspond with Coast Guard ratings. Many veterans choose this program to maintain military skills and earn points toward retirement eligibility.

    More quotes:

    Does every Coast Guard unit offer part time Reserve opportunities?
    No. Some Coast Guard units, especially for aviation, only have billets for active duty personnel. Reserve opportunities are available in many locations but are job and geographic specific. In general, the candidate must live within 100 miles of the unit with the opening.
    What is an RK, RP or RY?
    Reserve enlisted personnel who go to boot camp in Phase I of their Initial Active Duty for Training (IADT) are classified in one of these categories. Phase II of the training differs:

    RK: A student who returns home after boot camp and returns to a civilian school. During the first summer following boot camp, you will usually attend a Class 'A' school. Between boot camp and A-school training, you'll drill two days per month at a Coast Guard unit near your home.
    RP: reports directly to an A school after boot camp, and following school, begins monthly drills.
    RY: reports directly to a Coast Guard unit after boot camp and serves 30 days active duty to complete IADT. You'll then start your monthly drills.
    What is a drill?
    Drills are periods of Inactive Duty Training (IDT), under orders, scheduled for the performance of augmentation training, formal training, or unit training. No more than two drills can be performed on one calendar day, and each drill must be at least four hours long. Most units schedule multiple drills over one weekend each month (two drills Saturday and two drills Sunday).
    What if I have a problem getting time off from my employer to fulfill my military service obligations?
    By law, as a member of the Reserve, you must, upon request, be granted a leave of absence to satisfy a requirement for military training. The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act says that employers are required to provide Reservists with time away from their jobs to perform military duty. However, you must notify your employer that you intend to take military leave. You must be re-employed after completion of your military duty and returned to your job within a reasonable time. You must be treated as though you had never left employment, including schedule pay raises, promotions or credit for longevity or vacation. Your employer only has to hold a job open for 60 months if you accept voluntary orders. For additional information, please visit the USCG Reserve Home Page.
