Committee and Assistant Scout Master Training

Scouters (that's you if you are a registered adult in T777!)

Every scout deserves a trained leader.  

Do your part by keeping current on Youth Protection Training every two years.  

If you are a Committee member, please sign up and take the Troop Committee Challenge online course at https://my.scouting.org/.  It doesn't take long and will help the Troop in our annual Journey to Excellence.

If you are an assistant scoutmaster, or just want to lead or join along on treks, consider taking the Scoutmaster Position-Specific course - there are courses scheduled in March and August, and Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS) - offered Mar, Apr, Sep and Oct.  These two courses will earn you your "Trained" patch and will help equip you for leading treks and other events.  This also helps the troop for Journey to Excellence.  Links to courses and schedules can be found here: http://www.sdicbsa.org/Training/BasicTrainingSchedule.php.  Trek leaders should also have a current First Aid/CPR/AED certification from the BSA, Red Cross, or other approved provider.

If you are ready for more, check out HALTT: http://highadventure.sdicbsa.org/train_haltt.htm  or other supplemental training courses at: http://www.sdicbsa.org/Training/SupplementalTrainingSchedule.php.

Training classes are a great way to learn a skill from the instructors and other scouters.  Bring that back, and make T777 even better.

Any questions, let me know.
