2 Troop 50 Adult Training Goals - ALL leaders MUST complete Youth Protection upon joining the troop and every-other year thereafter. - ALL High Adventure leaders must be “Trained”. - ALL Committee Officers must be “Trained”. - Leaders are expected to pursue training within one year of registration with Troop At least one leader, per scout patrol, on every trip or outing must be “Trained”. - Trip leaders shall obtain training specific to that trip (e.g. Safe Swim Defense, Safety Afloat). - Leaders are responsible for maintaining a current record of training in “Troop Master”. (See Rob Guillen, Troop Recorder Or Bill Short, Training Coordinator.) From Council >>=====> New Adult Leader Training Requirements On March 20, 2008 the Del-Mar-Va Council Executive Board approved the Year 2 Resolution for Direct Leader Training. By the end of 2008, all Unit Leaders and their Assistants need to have completed training. Furthermore, "training" now includes not only New Leader Essentials and Position Specific training, but also Youth Protection. This vote represents Council's continuing commitment to have direct contact leaders trained to deliver the Scouting Program. It is Boy Scouts' National Policy that every youth member deserves a trained leader, and every leader deserves to be trained. The Council's web-site lists courses organized by district and by date; this can help you.
