If you saw the sign above, would you feel confident about flying on one of their flights? If you found yourself on one of their planes, what would be the first question you'd ask the pilot? And if the pilot turned out to be one of the untrained 35%, how quickly would you get off the plane?
Parents registering their sons for Scouting trust that Scout Leaders have been fully trained. They trust that they know the Scouting program, that they understand the needs of boys and how to work with them, and that they know and practice safety.
The first question a newly recruited adult leader generally asks is, "What about training?" Everyone who participates in Scouting Leadership wants to do a good job. They're committed to their boys and want to present the Scouting program properly. And they're willing to take their time to learn how to do the job right.
To that end, the Shelter Rock District Training Team works hard to present a training program that fulfills the needs of the Units of the District. Our District is blessed with many experienced, knowledgeable Scouters who staff our training courses. In addition, they support and promote Council training courses such as Cub Scout Leader Pow Wow, Camp Shelter Rock, Outdoor Webelos Leader Training, Wood Badge for the 21st Century, Powder Horn, District Committee Training Workshop, and the Trainer Development Conference.
Since the Boy Scouts of America mandates that you to become fully trained, and we ask that you help us make sure that ALL leaders in your unit are fully trained. If you change your position in the pack or troop, ensure you update your training for your new position. Your Scouts and families deserve no less.
Again, once trained, you’re not trained for life. As your position in Scouting changes, your Leader Specific training needs to be updated to match your new position
