MLA provides electronic calendars for staff use. Due to the constantly updating needs of MLA and the regularly changing schedule, an electronic calendar is a means of instantly changing everyone's schedule simultaneously, to lower the amount of confusion.
Here are MLA's automatically-updated calendars:
The easiest way to use these calendars is to sign in to your Google account, visit the above links, and click the + Google Calendar button in the bottom right of the page (or directly from this page). You'll be taken to Google Calendar, and shown a popup asking whether you'd like to add a calendar. Click Add. That's it! You'll need the Google Calendar app installed on your device (Android or iOS), and you'll get notifications for upcoming MLA schedule items.
If you followed those steps, but you're still not seeing your MLA calendar in Google Calendar, you might have to manually enable the specific calendar. Go to your specific calendar settings, find the calendar called MN MLA-Phase-X, and make sure the box is checked next to it.
Accurate Medical Information
Because of the nature of the activities at MLA, it is vital that the information you supply in your application is accurate at the time of your application and upon in-processing at MLA. For example, if there are any changes in your medical condition (including new restrictions and/or limitations), you must notify the Medical Officer at in-processing, if you have not done so prior to MLA.
Consistent with CAP’s Nondiscrimination Program, CAPR 36-1, no member will be excluded from participating in MLA because of a disability. If you need an accommodation due to a disability, please contact the MLA Health Services Officer as soon as possible, so that reasonable accommodations can be explored.
Finally, due to the nature of the program and activities, CAP and its leadership cannot continually monitor compliance of your restrictions and/or limitations. Accordingly, it is up to each cadet to participate actively in MLA within the cadet’s restrictions and/or limitations, and to use the accommodations provided, if necessary.
