CAP Professional Development Course

We sincerely hope that these modules will be not only instructive, but also entertaining. The lessons provided in this course range from the very fundamental to the more complex leadership challenges that you may face as a CAP Senior Member. Both the United States Air Force and the Civil Air Patrol feel that professional development of its members is the cornerstone of their organizations—and that their most valuable asset is their people. Thank you in advance for your commitment to study and learn the subject matter in this course. We realize it is no small investment in time. We hope that your journey through this program is as fruitful (most of the subject matter is just as applicable in your job outside of CAP) as it is enjoyable.
