government agencies, particularly the Federal Emergency
Many FEMA courses are available through CAP for
online independent study and are mandatory for members
seeking qualification in emergency services as well as other
areas, such as public information and finance. Other courses
are offered in a classroom environment at the wing, region

Designed to help users participate in a unified command
and on multi-agency incidents, training programs
allow Civil Air Patrol to speak the same language and work
out of the same playbook as other emergency responders,
saving both time and money.
