WHAT IS REGION STAFF COLLEGE?

Civil Air Patrol’s Region Staff College (RSC) is designed to prepare selected mid- career CAP Senior Member officers with top quality professional development skills in leadership, communication and management topics. In addition, Staff College participants benefit from an enhanced understanding of the Civil Air Patrol organization at policy-making levels, preparing them for positions at the Wing and Region levels.

Region Staff College curriculum encompasses study in a wide array of areas, including:

• Leadership
• Management of people and resources
• Effective interpersonal communications
• Principles of organization
• Practical and creative problem solving
• Written communications
• Diversity and group dynamics
• CAP mission accomplishment at the Region level

Region Staff College is taught by a variety of highly qualified individuals including CAP Commanders, Air Force instructors, and CAP Members who teach professionally, as well as those who are executives in their civilian careers. Each staff member is carefully screened and selected based on their experience.

NEW ADDITION FOR 2020
This year, we are adding a special section of RSC designed specifically for the CAP NCO. NCOs in Civil Air Patrol play a critical and vital role within our organization, and the GLR RSC’s specially designed NCO program has been created to bring out the best in NCOs. A special seminar created & instructed by, and dedicated to the CAP NCOs. It is perhaps the most comprehensive resource available in the Nation. Attendees may choose from a full, 5-day course which meets all the requirements of receiving RSC credit, or a shortened 3-day session exclusively dedicated to the CAP NCO Program.

WILL ATTENDING RSC BENEFIT MY CIVIL AIR PATROL CAREER?
Region Staff College will help you to better execute duties and responsibilities associated with CAP command and staff positions. Leading CAP volunteers is uniquely challenging, requiring CAP commanders and supervisors to balance their volunteer members’ work and family needs, as well as the needs of their unit. RSC can help you successfully navigate these environments, as well as enhance your leadership abilities.

In addition Region Staff College is a requirement for completing Level IV of the Senior Member Professional Development Program. Completion of Level IV is a requirement for promotion to CAP Major.

WILL ATTENDING REGION STAFF COLLEGE HELP ME AT MY WORK?
Absolutely! The skills taught at Region Staff College are in great demand by employers in all. industries. Flip through the Classified Sections in any newspaper and you’ll read advertisements from employers looking for people with management and communications skills — the same skills you’ll find at RSC!
