New Members Task List

Welcome to our What Do I Need web page. Here new members can find resources to help them quickly obtain the needed rating, qualifications, and uniforms needed to execute desired positions in CAP.

Note: using a CAP email address is NOT mandatory, but highly recommended. Shawnee email addresses can be checked on your mobile device using the Gmail app.

Whatever email you choose to use should be your primary contact on your personnel file, this will ensure you are listed in CAP email distribution lists correctly.


You’re going to hear a lot about eServices, this is the online system CAP uses for just about everything. eServices contains our personnel information, cadet promotions, missions, and more. Each CAP member, regardless of rank or member type has access to eServices. You must create your eServices account after your membership has been processed, we often refer to this as being “in the system.”
