ATON Verifier Performance Qualification Standard

This qualification is the baseline national standard for qualification as an Aid Verifier. Individual Sectors/Districts may add, but not delete requirements appropriate to their area. NO TASK MAY BE WAIVED in this qualification.


Any Auxiliarist who holds an AV qualification, or any active duty/reserve who holds equivalent active duty qualification or who has been appointed by the Sector Commander to act as verifying officer.

Each Auxiliary or Coast Guard District or Coast Guard Sector may establish their own procedures for qualification. Members should check on the process in their area by contacting their Navigation Services (NS) Chain of Leadership and Management.
