Leader Position-Specific Training

Boy Scout Leader Training is divided into Scoutmaster/Assistant Scoutmaster (SM/ASM) Training and Troop Committee Training.

Scoutmaster Position-Specific Training is available as an instructor-led course, either as a council-wide offering or it can be held at a place and time that is convenient for your troop. If you are willing to host one of these courses, please consider allowing adults from other local troops to attend, as that makes for more productive discussions and more effective sharing of leadership tips and techniques. Please contact your district training chair for more information.

Introduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills is an overnight camp-out training and is part of SM/ASM training.
