Frequently Asked Questions

  1. I heard about the Community Auditing Program (CAP). What is the procedure for becoming an auditor? To become a community auditor you must have an active account in our system. To create an account follow the How to Become an Auditor directions on the Join the Program page. After your account is created all new auditors must make a one time visit to our office for account activation. At the visit, auditors are asked to bring identification to verify their current address.

  2. When is the next account activation period? Account activation dates are posted on this page.  

  3. When is registration held? Course registration dates are posted on this page

  4. I forgot my CAP password and can't login to my account? Try the "I forgot my password" link on the course registration website's sign-in page. You will be sent a temporary password. Sign in using the temporary password and create a new password.
