Solution Effective September 1, 2013, Auxiliarists who are selected and meet
criteria in accordance with the following provisions are authorized to

Additionally, new Initial and Five Year Currency Maintenance TCT Workshops are intended to be delivered in half-day sessions, respectively. They have been developed to encourage greater participation in the training process and to better utilize experienced Auxiliarists in their presentation.

District Captain (DCAPT) or District Directorate Chief (DDC), with an
info copy to the District Commodore (DCO).

submitted to the Director of Auxiliary (DIRAUX) for selection and
designation as a TCT Facilitator.

TCT Facilitators who are not re-designated at the conclusion of their three year period will be placed in REYR status in AUXDATA. Failure to be re-designated by the DIRAUX during the next five consecutive years in REYR status shall result in complete loss of this designation. The only way for a TCT Facilitator to again perform such activity will be to undergo the entire selection process.
