1. All exisiting CAPF 101T cards expire this Tuesday, August 31. Beginning September 1, 2004 all members in training in Emergency Services must use the Specialty Qualification Training Card (SQTC). These cards are available for download from the forms and publications page at the National CAP webpage or in CAPR 60-4 Volume II.
2. Taskbooks for the new training program are available from the National website under Emergency Services > Emergency Services Curriculum.
3. Since the old cards will not be valid after August 31, they will not be accepted at the upcoming SAREX's planned for September.
4. A new CAPT 116 became available on June 1. Per CAPR 60-3 para. 2-3(a), to remain current in the General ES Specialty (GES) rating, the new test must be completed within 180 days. To remain current in the GES specialty after November 29, members must show evidence of having taken the test between June 1 and November 29, 2004.
5. To hold a trainee rating in any specialty requires a current GES rating, so completion of the new CAPT 116 is also required of anyone with a trainee rating.
6. Refer to CAPR 60-3, CAPR 60-4 and the letter from the National Director of Operations dated 27 May 04 for further information.
Well, loks like you'll need a new card and have to take a new test, but I don't know of anything else.
As we all should know by now, the old 101T system of maintaining training status has passed into a new tracking system called SQTR. Remember, all training transfers to the new system, but there are new added requirements. Continue to train on your Specialty tracks, but review the new form for changes and additions. Any work done on a specialty will still carry over to the new regulation.
