Fundamentals of Training


The course introduces teaching techniques and skills to new Scout trainers but is also designed to help all Scouters, regardless of their experience, present effective training. It is intended for both youth and adult trainers and the course will help those who might have trained for other organizations to learn the BSA’s training techniques and will freshen up the skills of current BSA trainers.

Who: All Cub Scout, Scout BSA, Venturing and Explorer Post leaders who desire or are required to present effective training to other Scouters may attend. Remember each Pack must have at least ONE PACK TRAINER on the Pack Committee. It is strongly recommended that each Troop have at least ONE TROOP TRAINER on the Troop Committee and each Venturing Crew have at least ONE CREW TRAINER on the Crew Committee.
