~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The training program consists of these levels:

Fast Start Orientation: a quick overview designed to immediately orient leaders to their Scouting role before their first meeting with youth. These courses consist of a brief video presentation, a Viewer Guide, and a visit from an experienced volunteer. Many units own copies of the video and have experienced volunteers available to train others. The video can also be borrowed from the council service center.

New Leader Essentials: a course designed for all Scouting volunteers that provides the basics of the Scouting programs, the age-appropriateness of those programs, and Scoutings values and methods.

Leader Specific Training: a set of instructor-led courses designed to provide in-depth information for a new leader in a specific leadership position. These courses include Cub Scout Leader Training, Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmaster Training, Troop Committee Training, and Adult Venturing Leader Training.

Supplemental Training: a variety of specialized courses designed to provide continuous learning in specific areas of Scouting. These courses vary greatly in content, and are usually designed for leaders who have already participated in the appropriate Leader Specific Training for their positions.

Advanced Training: Wood Badge is the advanced training program for all Scouting leaders. It is an intensive learning experience focusing on leadership skills and their application.

Youth Training: Several courses are available for youth leadership in Boy Scouting and Venturing. Training may be position-specific or more general.

Youth Protection Training: This 90-minute course is available to all leaders, parents, and interested adults. The course is designed to help adults learn how to recognize and protect children from abuse. Retake this training every 2 years.
