To be a fully trained Cub Scout Leader you will need the following trainings:
Fast Start training is the first step for any new volunteer and is to be taken immediately after a new leader registers and before he or she meets with any youth member. It is meant to provide all the information and resources for new leaders to conduct their first meeting,along with guidance for the meetings that follow. Taken online any time at http://olc.scouting.org/. A separate course is there for each Cub Scout leadership position.
Every leader in Cub Scouting should complete Youth Protection training,which provides essential information about working with youth. Taken online any time at http://olc.scouting.org/. Required once a year for Twilight Camp and every two years in general.
This is Scouting
For all unit-level leaders. Replaces New Leader Essentials. Taken on line any time at http://olc.scouting.org/. This training is for all new Cub Scout,Boy Scout,Varsity,or Venture Leaders. You only need to take it once.
This training helps you know how to do your position. This training can now be taken at http://olc.scouting.org and we are continually getting asked the question of should we take it online or take a live one the district offers. To this ask yourself the question,“Do I want to be taught by a computer or a machine?” The online course is separated out for each den leader position. If you change positions you will have to take it again. The in person course teaches all the den leaders together. Thus you only need to take the training once to go from Tiger Den Leader to Webelos Den Leader. Kind of nice that way. You will need to take it again for Cubmaster and Committee though. Don’t forget these all have different online fast start course you must take as well to be fully trained. If you are totally new to Cub Scouting the in person class might be a great way to start. It is up to you. Whatever you do get trained.
The next trainings available are below:
* Den Leader,Cubmaster,and Committee Leader Specific,Tuesday,October 9th,2012 from 6:30 to 10:00 pm by Lone Star District at the McKinney LDS building where round table is held 2801 Eldorado Pkwy,McKinney,TX;$5 early or $8 late. Sign up and get more information here.
Pack Trainers. Your training can be scheduled with the training team.
