      TRAINING UP DATE

      -Selected councils will pilot required training for direct contact
      leaders in 2010. Plans are in development to require training for all
      direct contact leaders in 2011. Councils should prepare to make
      training more readily available and to expand their training teams.

      -www.scouting.org has been redesigned and will soon be much more user
      friendly. To get to training information, click on volunteer, then
      training, and you will see the new and improved training resource page.

      - "This is Scouting" is now up and running on the Online
      Learning Center. It is a 6 module training course that can be completed
      in about an hour. It replaces New Leader Essentials. It is now
      available on DVD and the cat # is 36118 and retails for $9.99. The
      training code is WAO1. New Leader Essentials should now be
      discontinued.

      -We had slightly over 50,000 completed training courses on the Online
      Training Center during the month of February and slightly over 80,000
      completed training courses in March.

      Worship, Bullying, Leave No Trace and Disc Golf. These courses can be
      down loaded to be used as a course outline or they can be a self study.

      Wood Badge and NYLT staff and is a day long course that is focused on

      -Scout Parent Unit Coordinator Fast Start is now on the Online Learning
      Center. For each unit to participate in the Scoutparents program they
      must designate a Scout Parent Unit Coordinator who will coordinate
      parent involvement in unit activities.

      -As of 1-1-09, the tour permit also requires at least one person have
      completed the Youth Protection Training within the past 2 years. BALOO
      does not have a 2 year shelf life.

      -Two other new training courses are now on the Online Learning Center.
      Both Trek Safely (S76) and Climb on Safely (S74) are available for
      Scouter's to complete. Both of these courses have a two year shelf
      life.

      -A Kodiak mountain trek for Venturing youth and older Boy Scouts will be
      offered this summer at Philmont Scout Ranch the week of July 26-August
      1, 2009. Registration is handled through www.myscouting.org

      can attend a training course at the training center while their youth
      are hiking the trek.

      -The centennial edition (12th) of the Boy Scout Handbook will be
      available in August, 2009. It will feature a mixture of parts of many
      of the early hand books with a 21st century flair. The handbook
      features chapters on Leadership and Leave No Trace, which both are
      firsts. There will be a supplemental 100 year timeline book with the
      first printing and a mini-book with the rank requirements that is pocket
      size. A website will provide in-depth information on many subjects.

      -The Volunteer Development Committee, chaired by Dan Zaccara operates
      with a number of task forces that are charged with developing new
      training material and revising existing material.
