Pack Leader Training
To be a fully trained Cub Scout Leader you will need the following trainings:
Every leader in Cub Scouting should complete Youth Protection training,which provides essential information about working with youth. Taken online any time at www.myscouting.org.
This training helps you know how to do your position. This training can now be taken at www.myscouting.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.
