CAP courses offer Arizona-specific content that allows you to:

Upcoming Courses

The CAP courses are currently in the process of undergoing enhancements, both to the training platform and to course content, to ensure that the professional development needs of all participants are not only met but exceeded.

All past CAP Training participants, as well as AzCAN members, will receive timely email/newsletter updates related to the official launch of the new CAP Training platform and refined offerings. We look forward to continuing to provide high-quality, comprehensive, and relevant professional development to school counselors, educators, and professionals committed to increasing postsecondary access and attainment in Arizona.
