The curriculum for each LESA School follows the task guides and SQTRs developed by CAP.

Consult the application for age limitations and prerequisites.  

We know TXWG/HQ is a long trip for many of you. However, we'll provide inbound or outbound sorties to cover the cost of fuel, and this should help make the trip easier. This should be arranged with the LESA Administrator two weeks in advance in order to get sorties into WMIRS. We will need to keep the CAP vehicle for the week in order to pay for the sortie. We will make similar arrangements for aircraft.  

This facility is a great place, especially considering its very reasonable rates. The course fee will cover three meals a day, lodging, classrooms, and wireless Internet access.  

Lone Star Emergency Services Academy offers a wider variety of class options at a more affordable price than other CAP academies, our facilities are outstanding, and we offer to cover transportation costs to the event. Why would you want to go anywhere else?
