Sunset Trail: Training

Trained leaders are adult Scouters who care enough to sacrifice a bit of their time to become fully knowledgeable in the best Scouting methods so that they can most effectively help young people in their units.  Every Scout deserves a trained leader, and every leader deserves to serve alongside other leaders who are fully trained so that they are as effective as possible.

This page is dedicated to the basic things a leader should do to be trained. These are your first steps. Most basic trainings can be completed online; however, check your district calendars to see when these trainings are done in or near your community, because training sessions are greatly enhanced by the personal touch of an experienced trainer and from interacting and sharing with other new leaders.
