Re: [Scouter_T] Digest Number 292
- Every Leader should participate in Fast Start Training as soon as
possible after they join the Troop. IMHO, all new parents should be
included as well.
Fast Start is designed to give them a crash course in the Boy Scout
Program. That is why I like giving all new parents the opportunity to
watch the presentations.
My recommendation for your Training Plan is to schedule time during 3
Troop Meetings shortly following the last group Bridging into your
Troop to present the Fast Start Video to your new parents/leaders.
Present one of the 3 segments during each of those sessions. Leaders
in this case includes Scoutmaster, Assistant Scoutmasters, and Troop
New Leader Essentials does not cover the Troop Program. It covers the
basics the are common across all programs, Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts,
Varsity, and Venturing. So a leader should take Fast Start even if
they have completed NLE. Plus, remember that New Leader Essentials is
not required if a Leader has previously completed Basic Training. For
Example a Pack Committee Member who has completed Basic Training would
skip NLE and only complete Fast Start and Troop Committee Challenge.

simply optional, to be used when the next NLE isn't offered for a
