What Training Do I Need?

Every Scout deserves a trained leader, and every leader deserves training so s/he can successfully deliver the Scouting program. Training of adults to successfully deliver the Boy Scout program has evolved into a well-presented, thorough, curriculum of courses to be completed in sequence. The new leader training is customized to help leaders graduate through the courses quickly and with little duplication. Here are the courses you need to fulfill your commitment as an adult leader.
