I talked to Joe Glasscock personally about this a week ago. He says
the new course is titled "This is Scouting". It is a series of seven
modules. Test subjects have taken 1 hour to 1-1/2 hours to complete
all 7 modules. You can take them all at once or over time. You have
to complete all 7 to receive credit for the course.
He said it would be on-line January 1st or very soon thereafter.
