Top 10 Training Topics
Boy Scout Training I expect you've heard the talk of mandatory training for scout leaders coming along. I suppose that's probably really the only way to make it happen - make it required. I'm happy that all but 1 of the Assistant Scoutmasters in our troop have their Trained patch. That's 1 out of 16, and he's just got one more session to complete.

That's just the basic training required to wear the Trained patch. There's a lot of other Coaching that I'd recommend all adult leaders take to improve the safety and success of their unit activities. It shouldn't be taken because it's required for a patch or to do a tour permit - it should be because you want to be as prepared as possible for anything that may happen.

Here's 10 to consider:

There are also a bunch of Supplemental Training Modules at that cover specific topics.

I agree with you. Unfortunately the only way to get trained leaders is to require certain training. Thanks for keeping us updated. Have a nice day and smile! Come to Florida for sun and fun!
