You have a mentor, aka your squadron commander.


Ummm. No, not online.

When you complete an online specialty track test it does show up on the Commanders Dashboard.
What they do with that information is up to them.

Unit CC's are required to sign off that they have assigned a mentor to every new adult member.

... and working with a mentor.


Seems to be one of the biggest problems CAP has, in my short lived experience here.

I think a big part of our retention issues would be solved, if each new face walking in the door actually had a friendly, interested, mentor who would help guide them step by step through at least the stuff needed for the first year. I had an absentee PDO, and no mentor. Had to search out all this stuff myself, until I finally got to know a few folks well enough, to where I could ask them questions without feeling dumb.

You have a mentor, aka your squadron commander. They're the one who approves all of your speciality rating stuff and they're the one who needs you to fill a slot in the unit.

Thanks SarDragon and Eclipse, now it's all clear how it works!!  Lot of works need to be done before getting rating!

Why are you taking the Master quiz for the tech rating.  I believe the fixed the
logic a while back and you can't get credit for a rating higher then you are due.

Look in the Training Tab of your personnel record to see if credit posted, though
even if it did, you took the wrong test.

I got these quiz Tech, Sr, Master on Safety track years ago, but rating level on Safety still "None"
Just passed the Finance track test for Tech yesterday.

As noted above, you need to chose a specialty that you want to train in, download the corresponding pamphlet (200 or 40 series), and accomplish the items on the Technician checklist. Any online tests are merely supplementary to the knowledge gained from reading the study materials, and working with a mentor. They are in no way a sole criterion for completion of the rating.
[ETA] I have taken, and passed, on a whim, several of the online tests for various specialty tracks. Am I qualified to perform in any of those positions? Not a chance. It just means that I have been in CAP long enough to have gained a significant amount of basic knowledge in these areas. As a comparison, knowing the rules for chess does not automatically make someone a good chess player.

OK - honestly, I have no idea what you're asking.

But the process works as we indicated - substantiate the checklist from the pamphlet, pass the
test, quiz, whatever, PDO submits all work and TIG through eServices.

If you don't have passed quizzes, tests, whatever showing in the Training tab in your personnel
file, yo either didn't pass, or something broke.

The LMS shows all sorts of stuff not related to PD, and who knows what else.
