District Training Committee

Offers a range of classroom and field Adult Leader Training for all Scouting program areas: Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, and Venturing, and other specialty areas.  Initial orientation to the Scouting program, Youth Protection, and most Cub Scout leader training is offered as on-line Computer Based Training. This is reinforced with associated basic field activity training (like BALOO) and supplemental training offered at the monthly District Roundtables.  Scouts BSA Troop-level adult Leadership and Troop Committee service require formal classroom and field training, as does Venturing adult Leadership. Formal training programs are offered on weekends twice a year, and may be complimented by training modules given periodically at District Roundtables for those who cannot attend weekend training.

Help Wanted

The Training Committee is always looking for adult Scouters to serve on various training staffs.  The prerequisite for joining a training staff is having completed the level of training involved.  Experience at the unit level is preferred but no formal instructor training is required.  The Training Committee will provide the BSA “Trainer’s EDGE” instruction for new training team members. 

If you are interested in learning more about training opportunities or would like to join a training team, please contact Larry Peterka or at 410-562-9776.
