Availability of Training Materials for Purchase
- We have a national Scout Shop.
I found out today that a troop/pack had ordered IOLS and BALOO manuals and intended to put the two courses on themselves.
My first thought was that they should not be able to purchase/order them. My council training advisor tells me that the Scout Shop can sell anything that has a valid number, and he doesn't think we have the ability to control it.
What do you guys/gals in other councils do? Or am I over-reacting and should, with the liberalization of training venues, allow units to purchase manuals and do their own training?
- No where did National authorize this. What they did authorize is a combined
sessions on part of the course to save on staff.

We have run a combined course for about 3 to 5 years, since National
advocated it. We have good response from the leaders (it is a bit longer
for the Webeloe leaders) and at the end, we give cards to Webeloe leaders
for both the Webeloe and the Boy Scout Outdoor Leader Skills
