Adult Basic Training

CLICK HERE for a list of Training Events across CAC

Step 1: You're a new adult leader in Scouting. What training MUST you take?
Youth Protection Training
  • Required for all registered adult leaders
  • Take the course online through the MyScouting Tools in My.Scouting (if you are new to Scouting, you will be asked to create an account).

NOTE: Scouting used to require "Fast Start Training" and "This is Scouting" training. You don't have to take either... but both are recommended and available online.

Step 2: To be considered a fully "Trained" leader for a leadership position, take:

Position Specific Training
  • You must take the course specific to your position (example: if you're a Tiger Den Leader, take Tiger Den Leader Specific Training. If you're an Assistant Scoutmaster, take Scoutmaster/Assistant Scoutmaster Leader Specific Training.)
  • Courses are offered by our districts or council (see links on this page for district training pages or CLICK HERE to see district/council training events open for registration)
IF YOU'RE A CUB SCOUT LEADER: you're now a trained leader. You may opt to also take Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO), since someone has to be BALOO-certified for your pack to go camping (CLICK HERE to see if any BALOO courses are open for registration).

IF YOU'RE A BOY SCOUT LEADER: in addition to Scoutmaster/Assistant Scoutmaster Leader Specific Training, you must also complete Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills training to be considered fully trained (CLICK HERE to see if any IOLS courses are open for registration).
  • NOTE FOR TROOP COMMITTEE MEMBERS: If you're a Troop Committee Member, you don't have to take Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills training. Instead, you take the Troop Committee Challenge training, which is available through MyScouting Tools in My.Scouting (if you are new to Scouting, you will be asked to create an account).
IF YOU'RE A VARSITY SCOUT LEADER: in addition to Varsity Scout Coach Leader Specific Training, you must also complete Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills training to be considered fully trained (CLICK HERE to see if any IOLS courses are open for registration).

IF YOU'RE A VENTURING LEADER: you're now a trained leader. You may opt to also take Powder Horn training, which will expand your knowledge of high adventure outdoor activities.
