Level III: Management

Welcome to Level III !  Now that you've compled Level II, you are prepared for Level III.

To complete this level and earn the Grover C. Loening Award and the Loening ribbon, you will become senior rated in a specialty track, attend two major conferences, serve in a staff or command assignment for at least one year, obtain the Yeager Award, and complete the Corporate Learning Course. See CAPR 50-17 for details on these requirements.

Should you have any questions about what you are leaning in level three please do not hesitate to talk to your mentor, unit Professional Development Officer, or unit Commander.

Requirements

1. Become Senior Rated in a Specialty

Becoming a craftsperson in your job. Obtain a senior rating in a specialty track. Successful completion of the senior rating in a specialty track results in award of the Bronze Star for the Leadership Award ribbon (CAPR 39-3). Request authorization through your Professional Development Officer (PDO) to your unit commander. Once approved, you may then purchase the ribbon bronze star device from Vanguard.

2. Attend two Major Conferences 

Collaborative Learning. Attend two wing, region, or national conferences. These conferences afford CAP members a broad view of the CAP corporation’s organization and expose them to the issues confronting CAP. Attendance at a region/wing aerospace education conference can also be credited for one conference attendance. Conferences attended prior to entry into Level III count toward fulfillment of this requirement.

3. Complete Corporate Learning Course

Wing Level Leadership. Complete the Corporate Learning Course. The Corporate Learning Course (CLC) discusses the relationship the CAP squadron has with the next major echelon of command -- the wing.  Specifically, CLC discusses how wing-level operations help to accomplish CAP's three missions of aerospace education, emergency services, and cadet programs.  It describes the working relationships wing staff officers have with each other, and their squadron level counterparts. More information below.

4. Earn the Brig Gen Charles E. "Chuck" Yeager Award

This award recognizes successful completion of the Yeager test portion of the Aerospace Education Program for Senior Members (AEPSM). The test may be completed online and the member’s record will automatically be updated reflecting completion of the AEPSM. If the online process is not used, the wing/region director of aerospace education certifies completion of the AEPSM on a CAP Form 127, Monthly Certification Report, and forwards it to NHQ/DPR.  The Yeager test is based on the Aerospace: Journey of Flight 2nd edition which can be found on eservices under "AE Download and Resources". The Yeager test can be found on the Learning Management System (LMS) in eServices.
