Scoutmaster Specific Training

Position Specific Training for Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters

This course is designed for any adult who is currently serving as or who intends to become a Scoutmaster or Assistant Scoutmaster in a troop. The course is also beneficial for parents who simply desire a better understanding of how a troop functions.

This course is in three segments of approximately 2.5 hrs each.  The three segments are often taught in a single day.

The other course required to be "Trained" is Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills - IOLS (see info on this website).
