AV equipment that we use includes overhead projectors (council owns)
and laptops/projectors which are privately owned by members of the
training team. Sometimes the facilities that we use for training
have AV equipment that we have permission to use. So, for us, the
answer is - it depends on where, when and who is doing the training.
Materials from our training kits are supposed to be paid for by
council. Materials that we hand out to trainees comes out of the
training budget for our team (read: training fees of about $3 for Cub
Scouts, more for Boy Scouts.)
At our district dinner this year we held a silent auction which
raised a few hundred dollars that we hope to earmark for training so
that our volunteers don't have to pay for training.
