Scoutmaster Specific Training and IOLS (Introduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills)

April 3, 2020 - April 4, 2020


This event has been postponed due to the COVID 19 outbreak.

Stay safe!

We will keep you updated and please let me know if you have any questions.

This is a two night course April 3rd and April 4th. Participants must attend both nights.

Scoutmaster Position-Specific training is the BSA’s initial level of training for the top leaders of Scout troops. It is designed for Scoutmasters, assistant Scoutmasters, and junior assistant Scoutmasters. However, committee members and other adults connected to a Scout troop are welcome to attend.

When Scoutmaster Position-Specific training and Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS) have both been completed, new Scoutmasters will have the tools needed to begin an effective Scouting program and will have earned the right to wear a “Trained” patch.

How effectively the Boy Scouts of America influences the lives of youth depends on its leaders and their ability to apply the aims and methods of Scouting – these are the keys, and developing the ability to use these keys is what this course is all about.
The purpose of Scoutmaster Position-Specific training is to provide an active, fun, and positive learning experience for new and experienced Scoutmasters to learn and apply proven techniques for running an effective Scout troop. Scoutmasters will learn how to meet the aims of Scouting by applying the eight methods of the Scouting program during the four main sessions of the course:
• Patrol Method
• Support Team
• Advancement
• Annual Planning
