Who Should Go To Training?

If you have completed an Adult Scout Leader application, you should be going to Training. Every adult Scout leader position has important tasks in bringing the program to the pack, troop, team, or crew.

In a Cub Scout pack, if you have registered as a:

  • Den Leader
  • Assistant Den Leader
  • Tiger Den Leader
  • Webelos Den Leader
  • Assistant Webelos Den Leader
  • Den Leader Coach
  • Pack Committee Chair
  • Pack Committee Member
  • Cubmaster
  • Assistant Cubmaster, or
  • Chartered Partner Representative

One starts their training with Cub Scout Leader Fast Start, then attends New Leader Essentials with Youth Protection Training, and Cub Scout Leader Specific. To take Cub Scouts camping, you will also need to complete BALOO (Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation) and for Webelos Leaders, you will need IOLS Webelos Leader (Webelos Outdoor Leader Fundamentals) or IOLS (Introduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills).

In a Boy Scout Troop, if you registered as a:

  • Scoutmaster
  • Assistant Scoutmaster

  • Troop Committee Member, or
  • Chartered Partner Representative

One starts their training with Boy Scout Leader Fast Start. Then attend New Leader Essentials with Youth Protection Training.  For Scoutmasters and Asst. Scoutmasters, you need to continue with Scoutmaster/Assistant Scoutmaster Leader Specific Training which also includes: Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills.  For Troop Committee Chairs and Members, your next step is Troop Committee Challenge.

  • Crew Committee Member

One begins their training with Venturing Leader Fast Start. Then attend Youth Protection Training, New Leader Essentials, and Venturing Leader Specific training.

At the District or Council level, training is also available. Training for these positions starts with Commissioner Fast Start, Youth Protection and New Leader Essentials. For Commissioners there is Commissioner Basic Training.

If you have NOT completed an Adult Scout Leader application, we encourage you to do so. Registering is inexpensive and provides many benefits. But as a parent, should you choose not to do so, we still strongly encourage you to take a minimum of the introductory training for your child's program. Fast Start should be considered an essential introduction to the program, and will be best followed by attending New Leader Essentials. By understanding the Aims and Methods of Scouting, you will be in a better position to advise and support your Scout take maximum advantage of the program.

Remember - every parent and adult Scout leader has important responsibilities in bringing the program to your child's pack, troop, team, or crew.
