Technically, if he is fully trained, he does not need to go through
NLE for his new position, only training for that position. While I think we
all agree that if it's been 6 years, new position or not, training would
probably be usefull, he shouldn't have to start from scratch.

NLE, however the NLE training in its present form has not been around that
long. Rules & requirements change over the years. Just because someone has
been through training 5-6 years ago doesn't mean that they (and the youth)
would not benefit from that leader attending a refresher course. Also, just
because someone has held a position for several years does not mean that
they are necessarily doing the job correctly or that they should be exempt
from training. I'm sure there are leaders out there who may have never
attended training and are doing a good job. However, I personally feel that
they would be capable of doing an even better job if they were properly
