Re: couple questions...
- I have a copy of the old Wood Badge syllabus, and would be willing to
scan and pdf the Effective Training section if you can't get it
The new Wood Badge syllabus is supposed to be out in September, so
we'll see. The old one is not supposed to be used after June 30 of
this year. The new scheme is that they will be giving out 3 admin
guides and 15 syllabuses each year. In our area those will be
distributed at the area conference that certifies the new course
directors. There will not be a "Blanchard fee", but there will be a
fee to cover those costs, and, presumably, the copyright of the video
clips they are still using. Last I heard, those had not yet been set.
The total should be less than the current fees, though.
I'm not sure that you'll need much in the way of new program
materials. The changes are not particularly big. Some presentations
have been changed/dropped/added to bring the Wood Badge team
terminology in line with the new NYLT course, and there was a minor
schedule change. There will be a little longer time in the "cub
program", and there are some other details that will change. It's a
long list, but none of the changes are major. I'm not sure what's
been finalized. These things were still a little vague at our last
In our area, there is a Wood Badge coordinator for each council or
cluster. When they attend Area meetings, they are brought up to date
on changes in the program. I'm not sure if that system is used
nationally, but someone at your council should have update
