Education and Training

Professional DevelopmentTo accomplish its mission, CAP needs an informed, active senior membership trained in leadership, management, and functional tasks. The CAP Senior Member Education and Training Program prepares members to serve their units, their communities, and their nation.” – CAPR 40-1 para 1.

Functional Address:  CAP SER/ET

 


ORGANIZATION OF THE EDUCATION AND TRAINING PROGRAM

The CAP Education and Training Program is divided into five levels. As members progress through these levels, they first receive instruction in the basic information needed as a CAP member and progress through training in leadership and management to prepare them to serve in command and staff positions in the squadron and at higher echelons. The CAP Education and Training Program is governed by CAPR 40-1.

THE EDUCATION & TRAINING PROGRAM AND VOLUNTEER UNIVERSITY

On August 4, 2020, the Professional Development program was renamed the Education and Training program. The major component of this change is leadership training previously delivered by formal in-residence classes is now delivered through the more modular Volunteer University, which provided for completion of modules in an onsite, online, or blended/hybrid format. The curriculum is the same regardless of onsite or online format.

Information on the new program is available on the Volunteer University page of the CAP National Website. If you have access to the 2020 National Conference page, there are numerous breakout sessions discussing various aspects of the new program. Finally, if you have questions, ask your unit Education & Training Officer.

Volunteer University needs instructors! All instructors for Volunteer University must apply and be approved. We need instructors for all levels of the Education and Training program, so if you have an interest in joining the team you can apply here.

Task completion for the Education & Training program is logged in a new e-Services module. This is accessed by clicking on Menu, then Professional Development, then Professional Levels. Note that many tasks, such as serving on a staff for an approved activity, mentoring, or conference attendance require upload of some type of documentation. This can be a certificate, a participation letter, a memorandum for record, or something similar.
