Level I Orientation is required training for ALL Senior Members.  This training consists of several topics covered over 3 blocks.  This training includes review of online materials, as well as mentor led discussions.  This is the first step in the CAP Professional Development Program for Seniors and helps new Senior Members become familiar with Civil Air Patrol.
Level I Orientation can be accessed from eServices from the Learning Management System link form the main menu.

Once Level I Orientation is complete, your mentor, Professional Development Officer, or other designated authority will submit your completion in eServices for commander approval.

Once your Level I is approved, eServices will credit you with the successful completion of
