Becoming a member of USPS requires passing a boating safety course taught by a local squadron and being sponsored by a squadron member. 

As additional public service, the USPS helps the National Ocean Service keep nautical charts accurate and save taxpayers millions of dollars each year by reporting chart corrections. The USPS also helps locate Geodetic survey marks and reports their condition together with any change in the directions needed to locate them.
