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

  1. How We Got Here
  2. CAP Core Values
  3. Cadet Protection Program Training (CPPT)
  4. Equal Opportunity & Nondiscrimination
  5. Our Heritage
  6. Who We Are Today

b. BLOCK II: Our Culture

  1. Introduction to Safety
  2. CAP Customs and Courtesies
  3. The CAP Uniform
  4. CAP Grade
  5. Organizational Structure & Chain of Command

c. BLOCK III: Your Future

  1. Expectations
  2. Professional Development
  3. 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.)
