OpsQuals Frequently Asked Questions

OpsQuals is CAP's Membership Information Management System. This system contains the information about the members achievements. OpsQuals can be accessed from the main page of the national web site. These questions are to assist you in using the OpsQuals system. Please review the tutorials that are provided for OpsQuals on the NHQ site.

What records do I need to keep? CAPR 60-3 requires the individual member to keep records to support all of the qualifications that they hold (CAPR 60-3 para. 2.7). This should include paper copies of signed SQTRs, Certificates, etc.

Unit commanders are also required to maintain all documentation for issuance of qualifications (CAPR 60-3 para.1-4c2) to members

Why do I show as a supervised trainee on several qualifications? When a specialty qualification expires, it automatically reverts to trainee status. Once you have completed the necessary actions to renew the qualification, it will change the specialty to qualified.
What do I need to do to become a Transport Mission Pilot? The requirements for Transport Mission Pilot (TMP) are in CAPR 60-3 para 2.3o:
  • At least 18 years of age
  • Current and Qualified CAP Pilot
  • 100 Hours PIC
  • 50 Hours Cross Country
  • Current GES qualification

You may also require a Commercial license and Class 2 medical to transport non-CAP assets.

Enter your credentials into OpsQuals and your TMP rating will be added to your 101 card after validation by Wng HQ
