Website U.S. Coast Guard
An information systems technician (IT) is responsible for establishing and maintaining Coast Guard computer systems, analog and digital voice systems (telephones and voicemail), and installing and maintaining the physical network infrastructure that ties the systems together. ITs at sea support tactical command, control, communications, and computer systems.
ITs are stationed throughout the Coast Guard, including Alaska and Hawaii. ITs work out of geographically centrallized shops, communications area master stations, and on all major cutters. Unit size can vary from large shops to independent duty assignments. ITs are dispatched to Coast Guard shore units and cutters to maintain, repair, or install their computer and telephone equipment.
To be an IT, you should have an interest in telephone and computer systems, an aptitude for detailed work, and be above average at solving mathematical problems. You must have normal color vision. Practical experience or prior training in telephone or computer systems maintenance and repair is helpful, but not required.
