As many members are aware the SLS course is now available on-line! Online courses in professional development are open to all eligible candidates who would not otherwise be able to attend in residence.  Please note that the primary method of completing professional development courses is in residence and the online option is primarily for those who cannot attend in residence.


There are many materials available from the Best Practices web site for Education and Training including many tracking grids for achieving the various levels of professional Development.  The link for the best practices web site is available through the below link:

We encourage the members of CAP to participate in professional development as part of your growth to be a better CAP member. The training you receive and the camaraderie you will develop with other CAP members will benefit your community, squadron, wing and yourself as a CAP officer.
