The online training course is open to everyone but only adult members,
who are US Citizens, will be able to attend the five day formal training course that is given by National Headquarters. Formal
training candidates must first successfully complete the online ARCHER training screening course and exam. Those members
successfully completing the screening exam will then be considered as candidates to attend ARCHER training. Wing and
Region Commanders will use the results of the screening exam to nominate CAP members for ARCHER training. In addition
to test scores, Wing and Region Commanders will consider a CAP member's dedication/commitment to the organization and past
history of availability to perform missions. The Advanced Technology Group will use the Wing/Region Commander nominations
and make final selections based on test scores, aptitude assessment, and geographical basing of the ARCHER systems.
It is important to note that only those members who receive formal ARCHER
training and successfully complete the course will be certified to operate ARCHER. ARCHER training is an intensive
five day course which will be conducted at Maxwell AFB, AL. Members selected to attend ARCHER training will
have travel, hotel and other expenses paid by CAP. Thank you for your interest in the ARCHER program!
