Scoutmaster Specific, Intro to Outdoor Leadership Skills, Committee Challenge, Den Leader, Cubmaster, MBC Classes

Posted on Updated on

Many troops need Troop Committee Challenge, Scoutmaster Specific Training and Introduction to Outdoor Leadership (also covers Outdoor Webelos Leadership Skills) training to complete rechartering.

Packs need Den Leader and Cubmaster Position Specific Training.

Crews need Venture Advisor Training.

In order to facilitate rechartering expeditiously yet honor the training requirement going into the holiday season, we are going to offer a novel solution. We are going to allow untrained scouters to remain on the roster, if and only if they do one of the following:

  1. Complete online training and confirm their training is accurately posted to their unit’s Training Manager report on my.scouting.org before the Charter is sent to the Registrar; or
  2. Present a receipt demonstrating prior registration and payment for the class(es) listed below or similarly situated course out-of-council.

If you can serve as faculty, you can sign up here.

Here are upcoming dates for Scoutmaster Specific Training (S24) (links to these training websites will be added later today to facilitate ease of use; they need to be created yet):

Greenfield’s Merit Badge University

This weekend, there will be a MBU at Greenfield Junior High that offers many of these scout troop classes. The system says that the classes are closed.

I have spoken to the Dean of the MBU this morning. He told me that they only have 6 or so adults registered for a class of 25+. More adults are welcome to register in person. Lunch is not available at the school cafeteria for late participants, but there is plenty of fast food just down the street.

Here is more information from their website:

The event will be held at Greenfield-Central Junior High School in Greenfield, Indiana, which is easily reached via exit 104 of I-70.   Exit 104 is 14 miles east of the I-465 bypass around Indianapolis.  After exiting south onto Hwy 9 in Greenfield, turn right at the first stoplight onto New Road;  proceed west on New Road until you encounter a roundabout at which point you will turn left (south) onto Franklin Street.  Continue south on Franklin Street;  you will see the junior high school on your right a half-mile south of the roundabout.  Turn right into the school parking lot, park, and walk in through the main front entrance of the school.  The school is located at 1440 North Franklin Street, Greenfield, IN 46140.  Check-in will be from 6:45am to 7:50am Saturday morning November 12, 2016 in the cafeteria and Scouts will meet their instructors in the school gym for the opening flag ceremony and announcements, before going to classrooms with the instructors.  If a Scout’s first class is not in the morning session, please arrive at the school cafeteria at least 30 minutes before the session in which his first class occurs.

UPDATED: 11/11/16 for different classes and locations as noted in text above.

    […] We have seven units that have completed all paperwork and dues payments but are awaiting training completion. (See post on problems with Training Manager.) Of those seven units, five of them only have one or two persons in need of training. Those units are Pack 105, Pack 175, Pack 514, Troop 18, and Troop 804. Most of those trainings are available online (except for Scoutmasters or Assistant Scoutmasters) or in-person in the next several weeks. […]
