Level I Foundations
The new Level I creates a single course with all the information a new member needs. It is organized into three basic blocks of instruction, each containing three to six lessons. These online lessons take between 5-15 minutes to read, and each has a short quiz at the end. It should take members 2.5 – 3.0 hours to complete the lessons.
a. BLOCK I: What We Value
- How We Got Here
- CAP Core Values
- Cadet Protection Program Training (CPPT)
- Equal Opportunity & Nondiscrimination
- Our Heritage
- Who We Are Today
b. BLOCK II: Our Culture
- Introduction to Safety
- CAP Customs and Courtesies
- The CAP Uniform
- CAP Grade
- Organizational Structure & Chain of Command
c. BLOCK III: Your Future
- Professional Development
- What’s Next?
The final lesson asks the new member, the unit’s Professional Development Officer and unit Commander to complete a “Plan of Action” to follow over the first 18 months. It’s a framework to help the member blend into the unit and become a fully contributing member.
(Operational Security Awareness Training (OPSEC) is not included in the Level I course. OPSEC if mandatory for all members at the time of eServices registration and is a condition of initial access to eServices.)
