Training

Adult leader training is vital to the success of Scouting programs and ensures that a fun, safe and fulfilling experience is provided to each Scout. Some courses may be completed online through my.scouting.org. All other courses are provided by the council and each district on a regular basis. 
Beyond required training, we encourage adult leaders to take supplemental training such as University of Scouting or Wood Badge as well as a variety of our other training courses throughout the year. 
Check out our Training Calendar for more information on how to become the trained leader every scout deserves
