Updated Cub Scouting Position-Specific In-Person Training Guides Available Now!
The training guides for Den Leader, Cubmaster/Assistant Cubmaster and Pack Committee (Pack Committee Challenge) have been updated to reflect the new Cub Scouting program and are now available on the adult training page of scouting.org.
Online Training for the New Cub Scouting Program
The online training for den leaders, Cubmasters, committee chairs/members and charter organization representatives has been updated with the help of volunteers from around the country. The new training will be divided into shorter, more targeted modules so leaders can get the training they need, in the order they want, any time they need it. The new training is organized into time-based sections: the learning needed prior to the first meeting, within the first 30 days, and training needed to be considered position-specific “trained”.
The new training will be implemented in conjunction with BSA’s new Learning Management System. The anticipated timing for launching this new tool is June 30, 2015. Keep an eye out at www.my.scoutingtools.org for more information.
Cub Scout leaders have a chance to visit Scouting paradise and learn more about “Leading The New Cub Scout Adventure”. Four sessions are offered by the volunteers who designed the program and authored the new handbook and leader training materials. Visit the Philmont Training Center site to learn more!
