You will need to have two (2) documents created and ready to submit.
1. Resume in a standard format, emphasizing important CAP items.
You may include relevant non-CAP experiences/education. We recommend you create your resume using the Technical Document information in CAPP 60-32 Staff Duty Analysis.
Use a professional template of your choice. Here’s a sample resume. However, you should customize your resume to fit your own experiences and beliefs that make you an ideal candidate.
Do not submit a resume in memorandum format.
That format is unacceptable and may result in your not being offered an interview slot.

Concisely list your CAP activities in reverse chronological order, labeling them as squadron, wing, region or national activities. Upcoming summer activities you’ve been accepted to may be listed as “upcoming.”
Word or Google Doc format is acceptable. Excel or Google Sheet format may help you organize your information.
