What is Leader Specific Training?

Once a volunteer has a solid overview of the BSA's values-based program, he or she can begin training for a specific Scouting position through Leader Specific training. This training provides the specialized knowledge a new leader needs to assume a leadership role. Because each course is designed for a specific leadership position, the training time varies. Leader Specific training has been developed for the following positions and their assistants:

Cub Scout Leader Specific Training

Tiger Cub den leaders, Cub Scout den leaders, Webelos den leaders, Cubmasters, and pack committee members can complete this training in one day or two or three evenings.
The leader is considered trained upon completion of New Leader Essentials (currently available in 1 evening) and the Leader Specific training (also available as a single evening course) for that position. REGISTER

Boy Scout Leader Specific Training

Leader Specific Training is divided into four parts. The first three parts are designed to teach troop operations and can be completed in one full day or three evenings. The fourth part is completing "Introduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills," (IOLS) which are the skills required for the Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class ranks. Because emphasis is placed on a leader's previous knowledge of the skill rather than course attendance, a new leader can complete this course at an accelerated pace.

A new troop leader is considered trained upon completion of Fast Start Orientation, New Leader Essentials, and all four parts of Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmaster Leader Specific Training. Troop committee members and Webelos leaders who plan to move into a leadership position in a troop are encouraged to complete this training as well.

For troop committee members, Leader Specific training includes the Troop Committee Challenge. By following the Troop Committee Training Syllabus, participants can complete the challenge in three hours, after which they are considered trained. REGISTERATION is currently closed.
