Welcome to The Fundamentals of Training. This is the first course in the 3-part Train-the-Trainer continuum in Scouting and is intended for both youth and adult trainers. This session is designed to introduce new Scouting trainers to teaching techniques and skills.


New Training Continuum

  • T-1…Fundamentals of Training -- for all trainers
  • T-2…Trainers EDGE -- required for Wood Badge or NYLT staff
  • T-3…Master Trainer Course (held at BSA National Facilities)


This first part of the T3 continuum, The Fundamentals of Training, is designed to help Scouters, regardless of their experience, present effective training. The course will also help those who might have trained for other organizations learn the BSA’s training techniques. And, it will help freshen up the skills of current BSA trainers. Upon completion of The Fundamentals of Training, new trainers will be able to apply the techniques they have learned across the BSA’s leadership development programs, from unit level youth leader training taught by youth for youth, to position-specific and supplemental training for adult leaders. Upon completion of this first part, new trainers are coached and mentored by experienced trainers as they become comfortable with and confident in their training skills.


There must be a minimum number of five participants pre-registered no later than 5:00 PM Friday, October 18th or the course will be cancelled. 


Cost – FREE
