This message is being sent to all CAP cadet and adult members that will be at least 13 years of age by the 27th of July. We know some of you have only joined CAP in the last few months, and probably thought you would not be able to attend any national events this summer. Or maybe you’re a long time member looking to get additional training. Applications are now being accepted for the 2014 National Emergency Services Academy (NESA) held at Camp Atterbury in Edinburgh, Indiana. Applications will be accepted through the 22nd of June for courses being held during our two session weeks from the 19th of July through the 2nd of August 2014. There are courses for all members interested in emergency services, and this is a great opportunity for both new and old members to come train with hundreds of other personnel from across the country that have already signed up to attend. Slots are currently available in the following:

Slots fill up fast though. Apply online directly at: https://www.capnhq.gov/CAP.Events_NESA.Web/Form31.aspx

Slots will be filled on a first come first served basis through the 22nd of June or until slots are filled. We encourage you to apply soon to get into the course or courses you desire. Some courses only have a limited number of slots and some traditionally fill up fast. Registration is hosted in e-services, and you will need to login in order to register. Please note that participants can register to take multiple courses back to back, but not at the same time.

Additional information about NESA and the courses available this year can be found at: http://nesa.cap.gov/. In addition to our normal complement of courses for ground teams, aircrews, and the incident staff we have several short courses again this year to allow personnel to participate if they have limited vacation time or need training in varied areas.

There are also staff positions available for the 2014 NESA as well. Generally, staff members are prior NESA graduates, but some exceptions may be made by the NESA Director to ensure the best qualified personnel are used to provide this training. In additional to qualified evaluators in mission specialties for the varied courses, there are additional needs that the staff is trying to fill:

- Transportation Officer and senior members to support transportation needs

- Logistics Officer and cadets and adults to support logistics needs

- Medical staff that are paramedics or registered nurses preferably but at least EMTs to assist the Medical Officer

- Senior members to support the cook staff and kitchen operations

The current registration fee to attend NESA available through the 6th of April is $100 for the short courses, and $200 for a full course. In order to receive this discounted rate members must register, be approved to attend by their unit and wing commander and pay their registration fee by the 6th of April. Fees will increase to $110 and $220 for short or full courses respectively after that. Staff pay a single fee of $60 whether they are supporting a short course or one or more full courses. The registration fee includes, meals, lodging on site, printed training materials and aircraft and ground vehicle sortie costs for training on site. Participants are responsible for their own transportation to and from NESA, though many personnel are able to travel in corporate vehicles and aircraft funded through NESA as they are needed on site for training. There are also a limited number of scholarships available, and details are available online at: http://nesa.cap.gov/scholarship.htm

If you have any additional questions please direct them to the NESA staff at NESA-ADMIN@nesa.cap.gov.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2014 NESA!
