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.
Webpage 'navigation aids' will be posted soon.
Many basic trainings can be completed online at my.scouting.org; however, check our district calendar to see when in-person trainings are happening 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 leaders.

Do you have an adult(s) who needs training and cannot make our District Training dates?
It is ok - and encouraged - to attend courses offered by other districts - simply reach out to your Unit Commissioner - s/he can strive to get dates/times for nearby disrict trainings. If you do not know who your Unit Commissioner is, contact your District Commissioner to find out.
