How Do I Sign Up?

Congratulations on your decision to attend the premier adult training course in the Bay Area Council.

Flyer and Registration Form

Before attending a course, you must take prerequisite training courses specific to your area of involvement.

Getting The Training You Need Before Wood Badge

Determine What You Have Taken:

If you completed Scout Leader Basic prior to January 2002, you have satisfied the training requirements for Wood Badge. It may be beneficial to take the new training courses to refresh yourself on the skills and information presented.

If you have taken some training, you only need to complete the remaining courses to become a trained leader for your registered scouting position.

What Makes a Trained Leader?

  • Cub Scout leaders are considered trained when they have completed New Leader Essentials and the Cub Scout Leader Specific training for their position.
  • Scoutmasters and assistant Scoutmasters are considered trained when they have completed New Leader Essentials, Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmaster Leader Specific Training, and Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills.
  • Troop committee members are considered trained when they have completed New Leader Essentials and the Troop Committee Challenge as their Leader Specific training.
  • Varsity Scout leaders and assistants are considered trained when they have completed New Leader Essentials, Varsity Scout Leader Specific Training, and Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills.
  • Venturing crew Advisors, assistant Advisors, and crew committee members are considered trained when they have completed New Leader Essentials and Venturing Leader Specific Training.

Where Do I Start?

It begins with the existing Fast Start training, continues through New Leader Essentials, and is followed by Leader Specific training for each adult's role in the unit.

Here is a brief overview of the components of the training continuum.

Fast Start Training
Fast Start training is the first step for any new volunteer and is to be delivered immediately after a new leader registers and before he or she meets with any youth member.

Basic Leader Training
The new Basic Leader Training comprises two parts: New Leader Essentials for all unit-level leaders and Leader Specific training, which is based on the leader's unit-level position.

Leader-Specific Training
These training courses include leader specific training for Cub Scout, Boy Scout, and Venturing leaders; an introduction to outdoor leader skills; and the new Wood Badge course.

When Are These Courses Offered?

You may attend courses that are offered in any council or district. Registration is suggested and required for most training courses. You may check the Bay Area Council Training Page for an up-to-date listing of council training opportunities.
