Topic outline


    Welcome! These courses and resources are designed to enhance your understanding of CAP: what it does, how it works, how to issue CAP alerts, and how to manage and set up CAP for your organization. The material is offered as three separate courses to be taken based on your role and responsibilities in administering and maintaining CAP alert systems. In addition to the courses, a collection of IT resources provides guidance for installing and maintaining CAP Alert software.

    The courses are self-directed, meaning that you can take them at your own pace with all resources and learning activities available online. Upon successful completion of a course, you'll be issued a WMO certified badge.

    The CAP Basics course is a prerequisite for taking the other two courses. It provides an overview of CAP. Choose which courses to take based on your needs.
