Level V - Executive

Level V represents the pinnacle of professional development. This level concentrates on advanced leadership and management skills required of leaders at the wing, region, and national levels, whether they be in command or staff roles. The education and training provided is designed to help members succeed in large and/or multi-wing projects and policy-influencing roles. As such, members move beyond the comfort of the squadron or group. Requirements include completion of the National Staff College at NHQ with fellow members from across the nation; demonstrated leadership, continued mentoring and teaching experience, etc. Those who complete this level are eligible for the Gill Robb Wilson Award. The Wilson is the highest CAP award for professional development, with less than 70 members receiving the award each year.
