The Scoutmaster & Assistant Leader Specific course is intended to help adult leaders in leadership positions within their troops understand their responsiblities and to equip them with organizational and leadership skills to fulfill those responsibilities.
Working as patrols, this hands-on course provides adult leaders the practical outdoor skills they need to lead Scouts in the out-of-doors. Upon completion, leaders should feel comfortable teaching Scouts the basic skills required to obtain the First Class rank. This course is required of all direct contact leaders registered in Boy Scout Troops and Varsity Scout Teams, in order to wear the Trained patch. Check with your District Training Committee for the next scheduled course.
Available both as an instructor-led course and online, this course focuses on the core beliefs, aims, and methods of Scouting. It specifically helps each committee member learn and identify his or her role and responsibilities in support of the unit in order to provide a quality troop experience for the Scouts.
