Job Responsibilities:

Supporting the Coast Guard’s fleet of cutters stationed along our coasts and waterways, including Alaska, Guam, and Puerto Rico, is the EMs primary focus. On some cutters, the EM is the engineering petty officer (EPO), and while acting in this capacity is responsible for all on board engineering systems, as well as supervising the engineering department. EMs have a variety of shore duty assignments including maintenance and logistics commands (MLC), integrated support commands (ISC), and engineering support units (ESU).

Job Requirements:

To be an EM, you should have an interest in electrical, electronic, mechanical, and pneumatic systems, an aptitude for detailed work, and an above-average ability in solving mathematical problems. Since electricity itself is best never seen, the ability to visualize the theoretical working of the systems is a prime prerequisite. An EM must have normal color vision. Practical experience or prior training in electrical or electronic repair is helpful, but not required.
