Council General - Direct Contact Leader Training Posted Dec. 11, 2014
New for 2015 Direct Contact Leaders in a unit are required to be trained in Leader Position-Specifics. What does this mean? Adults in a Pack who are the Cubmaster or a Den Leader, must complete Leader Position-Specific training for thier scouting position online through MyScouting.org before they can be registered, this is effective 1/1/2015. For Troop and up, Scoutmasters, 11-yr old Scout Leaders, Varsity Scout Coaches, and Venturing Crew Advisors have until 6/30/2015 to attend their Leader Position-Specific Training and Intro to Outdoor Leader Skills. And as always, Youth Protection Training must be current through your membership period. Please remember applications received without Youth Protection Training will not be processed until this training is completed. We are working hard with each district to get this message out to leaders and to have plenty of training opportunities available for Troop and up leaders to fulfill this requirement. Watch your email for training news in the coming months.
