      David, the "Patrol Method", as it relates to Outdoor Skills Training, is
      taught in the course that precludes ITOLS, Scout Leader Specific. This of
      course follows New Leader Essentials as outlined in the new Training
      Continuum for the 21st century. Those taking ITOLS are put into patrols, as
      in WB, and will live the patrol method for the weekend of training. They
      should already have a working knowledge from the specific leader course.
      Although, committee members and Cub leaders take the outdoor skills course
      as an "Extra", as it is not required to complete their position specific
      training. They are always put into a patrol with members that are Scout
      leaders and hence "Know" the patrol method. Having staffed, developed and
      directed ITOLS and other advanced training courses I can tell you patrols
      are Always built so they have mixed experience levels among the members. The
      same holds true for Wood Badge.

      This concept is taught in the Trainer Development Conference and in Course
      Director Development.

      So, confused leaders attending outdoor skills will learn things from others
      in the patrol regarding methods. The course itself is designed to train
      leaders in how to "Teach" the skills of the wild to the Scouts in their
      unit.

      I hope this clarifies the premise of the course for you.
