2) There are minimum and maximum quota requirements set forth by TECOM per course, therefore nomination requests must be submitted as soon as possible for registration assurance.

3) Please send all corresponding information regarding the GSM through the Unit Safety Officer or Manager. This ensures all prerequisites are met prior to submission of nominees to Base Safety.

Disenrollment policy for students enrolled in the Collateral Duty Safety Representatives Course (CDSR)

1. Safety training is a key component to establishing and managing a successful safety program.  Mishap reduction and force preservation results from personnel trained to recognize and mitigate hazards in both garrison and field environments.

2. Currently, Ground Safety Officers (GSO) and Ground Safety Managers (GSM), receive formal school training via the two week Ground Safety for Marines formal school within 90 days of assignment.  This training provides core instruction for managing  the commanders safety program.  Ground Safety for Marines is designed for officers and SNCOs, which leaves a void for training command safety representatives.

3. MCIWEST-MCB CAMPEN developed a Collateral Duty Safety Representatives (CDSR) Course targeting E-5 and below. This course focuses primarily on curriculum which will aid the GSO/GSM in performing safety duties as per Marine Corps and Federal Orders and Directives.

4. This course has recently been extended from three (3) days to (4) days as is reflected in all classes starting with class 2019103.  This course is held five (5) times per fiscal year aboard Camp Pendleton in Building 13131 from 0700 - 1600.

5. The nomination form is posted to this website.  Please fill it out and send it to the POCs listed below.

For additional information, please contact GySgt Esther Wade at 760-763-2364 or Mr. Dale Waldren at 760-763-2366. Or send an email to CPEN_SAFE-TRNG@usmc.mil.
