Civil Air Patrol’s (CAP) National Emergency Services Academy (NESA) program was founded in 1996 as a way to increase the knowledge and professionalism of CAP members in Incident Management, Aircrew, and Ground Team response. During its first two years all the classes were delivered in Virginia. By 1998 the program had moved to Camp Atterbury, IN, providing unsurpassed ES professional development in multiple incident command, public information, communications, aircrew, ground team, safety, chaplain, and other disciplines.
Since its fledgling days, the curriculum at Camp Atterbury has grown from two two-week field SAR classes to now nearly 30 separate courses. During 2017-2018, CAP introduced the NESA- Mobile Training Team (NESA-MTT) off-campus extension program with pilot deliveries in Arizona, Texas, and New Jersey.
In 2019, the first formally recognized NESA-MTT courses were offered in 16 states across the nation (including Alaska). Since first piloted, over 5,000 CAP members from all CAP Wings have been trained. More units and classes (many offered through FEMA virtual deliveries) are on the schedule for 2023 (see schedule link below).
The mission of the NESA-MTT program is to institute an out-reach capability to all regions (including overseas units); while still providing a high-level of professional instruction, and fidelity in course delivery excellence; at a much lower cost to all CAP members and the overall organizational enterprise. Again, it is not a replacement for locally provided or State Training Office/Authority Having Jurisdiction (STO/AHJ) programs. Those should be the “first-stop” for regional training opportunities.
