  Observation Checklists Go Green


Posted March 24, 2011

Effective March 29, 2011, both the CAP-provided instrument-specific observation checklists and your custom-built observation checklists have a new look. The format is modified to be more compact, resulting in “smaller” checklists while retaining all the same content. This can reduce the length of each checklist by about half. Less paper wasted! Another improvement is that the blue coloration used to distinguish rows was removed to reduce the amount of ink necessary to print the checklist. Less ink wasted!
