Boy Scout Leader Training Opportunities
It is our goal to have all Unit Leaders become fully trained as soon as possible.
What does it take to be considered trained?
Scoutmasters and assistant Scoutmasters are considered trained when they have completed Fast Start, Youth Protection, This Is Scouting, Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmaster Leader Specific Training, and Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills.
Troop committee members are considered trained when they have completed Fast Start, Youth Protection, This Is Scouting and the Troop Committee Challenge as their Leader Specific training.
