Fundamentals of Training & The Trainer’s EDGE

THE FUNDAMENTALS OF TRAINING: This is the first part of the three-part train-the-trainer continuum. The course introduces teaching techniques and skills to trainers, regardless of their experience, and instructs them on how to present effective training. Intended for both youth and adult trainers, the course will help those who train or lead group activities. Additionally, it will help freshen up the skills of current BSA trainers. 
THE TRAINER’S EDGE: The Trainer's EDGE is meant to supplement the practice offered through Wood Badge and NYLT staff development, with a focus on the participant, while raising the level of skill a trainer brings to the staff experience. Only practice can polish these skills, but this course is intended to "train the trainer" on behaviors and resources while offering hands-on experience in methods and media.
