The first part is a six day learning experience taught over two weekends. During this time, participants are trained in and practice leadership skills to better serve the Scouting units in which they are involved. Through this experience each person develops knowledge and understanding of these leadership skills. This team development and leadership model will provide an invaluable tool in all aspects of your Scouting, personal and business life. You will develop a personal motivation to apply these skills in your Scouting position.
The second part occurs after the six days of training. Participants will put into practice the leadership skills learned by completing a set of commitments made during the course.
Upon successful completion of the Wood Badge course and “ticket” the participant will receive a certificate and the distinctive neckerchief, woggle, and beads. The Wood Badge “ticket” represents the participant’s commitment to completing a set of goals related to that individual’s Scouting position. The time period before your final completion of the “ticket” will be a minimum of 6 months and a maximum of 18 months following the course.
