 REMINDER ANNOUNCEMENT 
ATTENTION: WAWG AIRCREW
Last July the National Commander announced an initiative to improve the Aircrew Professionalism of all CAP Aircrews. 
 Part of that initiative is the requirement of all CAP Aircrews must complete the Online Aircrew Professionalism training available in the AXIS Training Program available in eServices. To date only 57% of the WAWG pilots and aircrew have completed this training leaving a significant number of pilots and aircrew that still need to get this training completed. Failure to complete this training will result in CAPNHQ removing your aircrew qualifications until you have 
completed the training. Time is running out and so if you 
have not already completed the Aircrew Professionalism Training please login to eServices and complete the training before you find your aircrew qualifications revoked by CAPNHQ

The Aircrew Professionalism training can be found once you login to eServices > Online Learning > Learning Management System > Go To AXIS >. If you cannot find the "Aircrew Professionalism" course on the AXIS opening page type Aircrew Professionalism in the search box and complete the required training.

Please do not delay getting this training completed.
