Academy for Supervisors


Class dates for all AFSU sessions this year (classes end in May- typically AFSU classes are not offered during the Summer mid-May thru late August).



Special Note:  There is class scheduled in Ketchikan in February (AFSU is rarely offered in Ketchikan).  Contained in the February Academy for Supervisors class are one-day workshops (classes) of: Leadership Excellence, Interpersonal and Communication Skills and Valuing Diversity.  While these courses may not be required, they are good introductory and/or refresher training (for those who have already completed an AFSU class).  The AFSU February class is Monday the 6th thru Friday the 10th  – see flyer(s) for details.


Please contact me for more information.

MMC Renewal Reimbursement LOA

Greetings Brothers and Sisters,

An agreement with the state for MMC reimbursement has been finalized. Any employee whose MMC is to expire in calendar year 2017 or 2018 and renew their MMC anytime between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2016 will be eligible for reimbursement from the employer. Employees need to submit a complete renewal, with payment, to the USCG, on or before 12/31/16, in order to qualify for the reimbursement. We encourage everyone to not wait until 12/31, but to renew sooner rather than later. 12/31 is a Saturday and the USCG Regional Offices will be closed. Instructions from the employer will be sent out shortly on who to send reimbursements to.


Yours in Solidarity,

Joshua J. Stephenson

Regional Director
