Professional Development

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

Organization of the Senior Member Professional Development Program

Five levels comprise the Senior Member Professional Development Program, they are as follows:
  • Level I, Orientation. Level I training provides the new senior member with information required for active membership in CAP.
  • Level II, Technical Training. In this level, the member acquires a technical skill and begins receiving basic training in leadership and management topics.
  • Level III, Management. Senior members desiring to serve in CAP management positions train at this level.
  • Level IV, Command and Staff. This level concentrates on members desiring to become leaders in CAP.
  • Level V, Executive. Those performing duty as commanders or staff officers train at this level.

Level V Awardees

Congratulations to the following members of the Southeast Region who completed Level V in the Professional Development program in the last year.  This level of CAP career development is for those officers performing duty as commanders or staff officers.  As such only the most dedicated senior members achieve this level.  Successful completion of Level V qualifies the CAP officer for the Wilson Award.  This is the highest professional development award given to a senior member.  It honors Gill Robb Wilson, an airman, poet, writer, and founder of CAP.
