Program Overview

mmr logoBriefly, the AP is a system of requirements for demonstrating a superior level of skill in various aspects of our hobby. It covers not only building various types of models, but also building other things which are important to the hobby, such as scenery, structures, track work, and wiring. It also recognizes service to the hobby and the NMRA, which are important as well.
The AP requirements are a set of standards, but they can also serve as a set of guideposts for those who are new, near-new, and not-so-new to the hobby. Not because they lead to some sort of official pat-on-the-back, but because they are a source of ideas for projects that can help us learn to become better modelers.Rick Lach is AP Chairman for Division 3. You can reach him at a meeting or through the Division E-Mail.

From the AP Chairman

Thank you all for your patience during this difficult time. The AP program is currently on hold while I recover from a flu and pneumonia. I look forward to getting back into the swing of things. Thank you also for the get well wishes from everyone. They mean a great deal to me. I appreciate all my Division 3 friends. Hold onto your AP documentation for now and when things are better we will work on AP again.
