Professional Development

To accomplish its missions, CAP requires an informed senior membership trained in leadership, management, and functional tasks. The CAP Senior Member Professional Development Program trains members in these skills and prepares them to serve their units, their communities, and their nation.

Functional Address:  CAP SER/PD

 


“To accomplish its mission, CAP requires an informed, active senior membership trained in leadership, management, and functional tasks. The CAP Senior Member Professional Development Program prepares members to serve their units, their communities, and their nation.” – CAPR 50-17 para 1-1.

ORGANIZATION OF THE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

The CAP Professional Development 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 Professional Development Program is governed by CAPR 50-17.
