Re: [Scouter_T] Re: Availability of Training Materials for Purchase
- Pack Trainer is not a substitute for the District training(ers) - they are there to encourage the leaders to take training courses provided by District, Council, and National.
From the National website:
Pack Trainer Responsibilities: The pack trainer is responsible for:
* Conducting orientation of new families and pack leaders
* Encouraging pack leaders to attend Cub Scout Leader Basic Training, which includes New Leader Essentials and Cub Scout Leader Specific Training
* Helping with Unit Leadership Enhancements during pack leaders' meetings
* Conducting other training as designated by the district and/or council
* Encouraging pack leaders toattend ongoing training such as Youth Protection training, roundtable, pow wow, BALOO, Outdoor Leader Skills for Webelos Leaders, and Wood Badge
* Remaining current with training material and program updates
* Keeping track of pack training records
* Encouraging den chiefs to attend Den Chief Training

Two factors to consider:
1. Purchase of Training Material
a. Most councils do not provide training material, other than one copy of the syllabus for each different training subject to each district.
b. Most trainer must buy or copy the master syllabus in order to have their own copy.
2. Authorized Trainers
a. Don't forget the Pack Trainer, which national say can teach Cub Scout Leader Specific.

- 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
