Scoutmaster Position-Specific Training

Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters who complete this course, Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills, and Youth Protection Training are considered "trained" for their positions.

My wife and I began leading this training back in 2015 when the course had just been completely revised.  Our training materials available here have been continuously revised and updated each year. The ones available now are for the 2019 syllabus and reflect the changes needed for the Scouts BSA program.

If you're a Scouts BSA trainer looking for Scoutmaster Position-Specific Training materials,  you can download ours here.

Handouts we use for the course: Scoutmaster Position-Specific Training (595 downloads)

Two versions of our presentation are available:

  1. Version for a large number of participants where you can actively use the patrol method during the day. Works well at a University of Scouting type of event.
    Scoutmaster Specific Slides 2019 (10 downloads)
    - also available on SlideShare

    Scoutmaster Specific Script 2019 (10 downloads)

  2. A version for small groups where multiple patrols aren't feasible. We use each week during our council summer camp. The PowerPoint slides for this one are designed to be printed and used in a 3 ring flip book - just like Troop Guides use in Wood Badge.

Scoutmaster Position-Specific Training 2018 Summer Camp

Scoutmaster Position-Specific TrainingTo see the background on this training, check out this post.

This program is really good at modeling the patrol method and works well in a large setting where you can have multiple patrols - but in a small setting, the patrol activities fall flat and are ineffective. With the summer camp groups being really small - like two or three folks sometimes - this version of the training has been revised to cut down on the patrol activities (patrol name, flog, etc.) but not cut the discussion that is vital to the experience.

There are two versions of the presentation:

  1. The FlipBook Version - these PowerPoint slides are designed to be printed and used in a 3 ring flip book - just like Troop Guides use in Wood Badge. You can download the FlipBook PowerPoint file here:  SM Specific 2018 Summer Camp Presentation (194 downloads)
  2. The Projector version  -  is on SlideShare. And the script that goes with the slides is here:  Scoutmaster Position-Specific Training 2018 Script (452 downloads)
