Does the CAPT 116 test have to be taken online or can it be administered at cadet meetings?


The CAPT 116 does not have to be taken online - it can be administered in a paper form at local units. The preferred method of completion is online but if that is not possible, contact the CAP/DO at do@capnhq.gov to request a hard copy of the test.

When the test is taken online the results are automatically stored in the testing system, and completion is automatically forwarded into the national database requiring less administrative support than taking it at a unit meeting using the paper form.


If the test is administered via hard copy, once the test is passed, the Emergency Services Officer or testing officer can enter the completion as a task into Ops Quals under the GES Achievement.
