Quote from: Eclipse on July 29, 2020, 10:39:09 pmI also think that looking to put ES training under this same umbrella, in an affectation of the Air University model, is an interesting idea, but is going to be an uphill battle, since that will put people not involved in ES in the position of bulldogging progress and updates.
Quote from: Eclipse on July 30, 2020, 12:41:23 amI don't see that at all, though it's certainly needed.I see this as an attempt to get someone to try and get the ops folks moving, though that could be a loose interpretation.
Quote from: Luis R. Ramos on July 30, 2020, 01:28:44 pmWhen the old PD program was correctly and without questions defined, now we have to get used to a completely ambiguous program and definitions. There are no explanations on how are these requirements to be met. Yes, there are few definitions and explanations. But no explanation on how to get those members working on a specific level to the new specific, equivalent level.
Quote from: Eclipse on July 30, 2020, 02:39:08 pmOne unintended consequence is going to be the click-through factor, which comes with any independent study. On one hand, in theory, you get a universal understanding with no local color, on the other, there's no opportunity to find out how things actually work.Get posted as an empty shirt and never come to meetings (check someone's box).Click-through the modules while catching up op Arrested Development in another tab.Profit!
Quote from: dwb on July 30, 2020, 03:02:32 pmLook, there is no regulatory way to prevent your worst-case scenario. You can't measure the output of somebody assigned as Assistant Coffee Officer. What you can do is train commanders (which is part of VOLU, BTW) to not approve awards if the member is not actually participating. And if they're not actually participating, then they're probably not going through the motions of online education. So honestly I think you're complaining about a caricature of a volunteer that does not exist in the real world.

I can't imagine the tire fire that would be in regards to approvals, etc.Really? I got the impression from the Briefings that those local SLS, CLC, etc. would continue as before, with a curriculum approved by Volunteer University, that would meet many/most of the module requirements.I'm new to my actual CAP career and still waiting for my fingerprints to come back so I can start Level I so I guess I'll be one of the first through the new system. That being said, this seems more flexible than the old and makes good use of prior cadet and prior military education to complete various modules.
Quote from: Eclipse on July 30, 2020, 11:47:55 pmMy point was, why on earth would anyone go through the unnecessary hassle of doing in face local classes when correspondence options are available.Unfortunately I will not be able to make the conference due to the expense.
