Testing Policy

Times authorized for in-person testing:

As a fundamental part of the cadet program, testing is encouraged for cadet promotions. Due to the enthusiasm that we encourage cadets to pursue promotions testing can commonly be handled on most meetings. If a cadet is in need of testing the cadet programs team at Dakota Ridge highly recommends that cadets send notification approximately a week prior, so that proper test administrators are present. 

What tests are in-person:

According to the current CAP regulations concerning testing the only in person written testing for cadets are milestone achievements (Wright Brothers, Mitchell, and Earhart). These milestone tests include leadership exams based on the Learn to Lead curriculum, plus aerospace testing for some. Additionally cadets have to conduct drill testing in person as well as physical fitness. If a cadet has any questions they are advised to contact their chain of command to receive advice on successful testing in CAP.
