Digest Number 645
I would be very interested in the syllabus you have developed for your 3
courses. If you are interested, you could send it to me but I think others
on the list might be interested too.
We have been trying to get the Pack Trainers to come to TDC but haven't been
as successful as I'd like.
I think a shorter introduction to the position would be an advantage and I
could encourage them to get the other training they need.
Also, since the materials are available at the Scout Shop, there are Pack
Trainers in our District that I, as District Training Chair, don't know
about who are doing training. They don't give out training cards or get the
training into Scout Net, either.
Good luck with your July 26th Conference. That sounds like a winner.
