I've taken several distance courses from chds and they are excellent, unlike most government courses, like FEMA, that are pitched at the lowest possible level.

This sounds like an incredible program, and Iím close to Monterey, but I just canít imagine my employer giving me an extra 12 weeks of vacation 😐

Also, I donít see where members of CAP are eligible for free tuition.

Pretty sure that refers to CAP members who are still military members. Doubt it is "many" but more on the "some" category instead.

Non-DHS federal government employees and non-Naval/Marine military officers are required to have financial sponsorship from their agency or command if they are accepted into the program. Agency-to-agency financial agreements and funding must be in place prior to beginning the program.

I really do wish that CAP were eligible for the OLMP offered through Air University, specifically the Leadership Concentration. We can already attend SOS, ACSC, and AWC.  I think it would be amazing to offer a Masters degree for those who are willing to put in the work.

You need to make that sale that CAP members are worthy of a free education. What is the major contribution to national service that warrants CAP members receiving free college?

Part of your "pay back" for the Air Force is your contract of service. CAP doesn't have that. You could literally join CAP, get the degree, and quit the next day.

That's the same argument that has been made for years about offering flight training to adult members.

I don't know how you'd possibly be able to even "manage exceptions" in these cases without some
definitive idea about what "active" means in regards to participation.
