Training

Leadership is a skill that is learned through training and practiced by doing. Through the Leadership Training Committee, the National Capital Area Council provides a wide assortment of training opportunities for leaders at every level of Scouting. From Cub and Boy Scouts, through Sea Scouts and Venturing, we offer the required and supplemental courses you need to “Get Trained, Then Lead.”

Continuous Improvement Is Our Goal
Doctors, government and industry leaders, educators and other professionals engage in continuous training. We expect the same of our leaders. While basic training (Position Specific Training and Introduction to Outdoor Leaders Skills, for example) does not expire, we encourage our leaders to stay current on the latest techniques and offer classes to make that possible.

If you are interested in becoming a trainer or using your training skills, contact Bill Mayo, Washington, DC District Training Chair; we could use your help. It’s a great way to stay current at the same time.
