Re: New Cub Basic Training Program
- I attended the Training Management seminar at Philmont at the end of
June. Our class was told about the upcoming Cub Scout training
revisions, which will be rolled out at the Top Hands meeting for high
level executives, which is at the end of August. It will be available
online right after that.
I understand it is broken into modules - two introductory moules, then
six position-specific, each about 1.5-2.5 hours. The training path
would be: YPT, these new modules, NLE. The course developers have
focused on providing skills for leader success, reducing overlap in
training, and presenting the training in a den (or pack or committee)
meeting format in order to provide hands on resources (among other
things). I'm sure their promotional material will be better than my notes.
That said, it does make for a tight schedule for those of us who have
training planned in September. My Cub Training Chair and I have
discussed this and decided to fall back to the old syllabus if we
don't have materials by September 7 for a September 22 training date.
We'll prepare our established trainers to plan to spend time on the
new syllabus, and the new ones will not even have to deal with the

the last year we have gotten going right on time. Even if there is only
one person in the room. It's only fair to those who were thoughtful
enough to arrive on time.
