Providing leadership, management, and ethics guidance
to the senior members of the Civil Air Patrol.

The growing demands of the Civil Air Patrol (CAP), the level of competency, and the need for dedicated professionals have all increased, thus it is necessary to have professional knowledge on how to handle difficult situations. CAP’s Professional Development (PD) in-residence schools benefit members with the education and training given to them in an interactive face-to-face environment. The course benefits are based on the quality, standardization and methodology applied, as well as, the effort one puts into learning these valuable lessons.

PD Tip of the Week
Consider giving your members a copy of CAPR 50-17 Attachment 1, so that they can plan their progress. Let them use it as a checklist.

The "Basic Instructor Course" is here!
There is now a way to obtain basic teaching principles and aids through a new course, the CAP Basic Instructor Course. The CAP Basic Instructor Course presents basic teaching principles and their application in CAP. It also discusses various teaching methods and techniques and ways to evaluate learning. Derived from the Air Force Guidebook for Air Force Instructors, the course provides practical information needed for any CAP member interested in learning more about teaching adults and adolescents. While it applies to most educational situations, the emphasis is on a military setting similar to that found in Civil Air Patrol.

Completion of the CAP Basic Instructor Course will show up in your PD training section of eservices upon satisfactory completion of an end of course quiz.

Click on this “Basic Instructor Course” link to take the course or you can also find it on the CAP University website.
