Attention Contracting Officer’s Representatives (CORs): Training is coming! 

By Kathy Murray, MyCG Writer

The Coast Guard will be offering training for all Contracting Officer’s Representatives (CORs) on Oct. 18 and 19,   

The COR 101 Training course is designed for all levels of experience. If you’re new to the role, the course will help you understand what the contracting process looks like and how the Coast Guard supports you. It’s also a great way for more experienced CORs to brush up on the latest changes and earn some of the 40 continuous learning points needed annually to keep your certification. Remember, even if you are currently inactive and not on a contract, it’s still necessary to maintain CORs certification.    

The hour and a half virtual course will be offered two times on separate days. The first session, on Oct. 18, will start at 1 p.m. EDT in order to accommodate those on the West Coast. The second session, scheduled for Oct. 19, will begin at 10 a.m. EDT. These are the first in a series of upcoming quarterly trainings from the COR Program Management Office. 

COR 101 Training will cover the following topics:  

  • The tasks CORs perform 
  • All pre-award activities you’re responsible for as a COR 
  • The COR Community Portal 
  • CornerStone onDemand (CSOD) 
  • Mentoring Marketplace 
  • Financial Systems Modernization Solution (FSMS) 
  • Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System (CPARS).
