We at NCAC try to provide you with a wide assortment of training opportunities in both the required courses and the supplemental courses. Whether you are involved in the Cub Scout, Scouts BSA, Venturing, or Sea Scouts program, we have the training that you need to “Get Trained, Then Lead.” We on the Leadership Training Committee have a firm belief that Every Scout deserves a trained leader. Every leader deserves to be trained.”
This may sound idealistic, but we get trained, and remain current in our training, so that we can serve the youth in the Scouting program. Yes, techniques change over time. Scouting goes through continuous improvement. We need to stay current with our training. I am surprised by Scouters who were trained 10 – 20 years ago, who feel that they have no need of further training. This is not a philosophy held by industry, professions, or government. I certainly hope that my doctor stays current on the latest in the medical profession! So while basic training (Position Specific Training, Introduction to Outdoor Leaders Skills) do not expire, we encourage you to keep current on the latest techniques. Hey! Join the District Leadership Training Team. We could use your help, and you can stay current at the same time.
