Leader Training


Unit leaders are asked to provide a list of current registered leaders and the status (date) of training for Youth Protection, Fast Start, This is Scouting and Leader-specific courses. This list is known as the unit's Training Inventory (click here for form). The District Training Committee uses those inventories to determine the needs for training courses in the district. Please provide them to Stan Weslowski, Dennis Underdown or Phil Seibert.

Don't forget, all registered adult leaders must complete the required on-line courses: Youth Protection, Fast Start and This is Scouting. The Scouting On-Line Learning Center has numerous courses that you can complete right from your computer!  Click here to go find out more.
