Boy Scout Leader Training starts with Fast Start video training. You should be able to check out the videotapes from your unit leader or the council library, or you can take the online Fast Start training!
As a member of your troop committee, completing This Is Scouting and Troop Committee Challenge qualifies you as a Trained Boy Scout Leader, and makes you eligible to wear the Trained patch for your position.
This Is Scouting is is an introductory session that highlights the values, aims, history, funding and methods of Scouting. It addresses how these aims and methods are reached at an age-appropriate style within Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, Varsity Scouting and Venturing. It is available on-line at the training web page and it takes about 40 minutes. Each leader completes This Is Scouting training only once.
Troop Committee Challenge training for Boy Scout troop committees has been developed to help troop committee members better understand their roles and responsibilities. Through hands-on experiential learning, this training will also enable troop committee members to better deliver the promise in support of the troop, Scoutmaster and Scouts.
This training is best when delivered to all of the troop committee at once. It should also include the Scoutmaster and, if possible, assistant Scoutmasters.
