General Emergency Services

Civil Air Patrol is America’s premier public service organization for carrying out emergency services and disaster relief missions nationwide. As the auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force, CAP’s vigilant citizen volunteers are there to search for and find the lost, provide comfort in times of disaster and work to keep the homeland safe. The following courses are required before pursuing other Emergency Services training.

 

GES 116 (a/k/a CAPT 116)
Foundational (Prerequisite) Course:
