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 (608 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 (25 downloads)
    - also available on SlideShare

    Scoutmaster Specific Script 2019 (23 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.

  1. Thank you for posting: We are presenting SM training this weekend and have been mulling over the fact that the Troop Leader Guidebooks will not be available until the end of the year. Makes connecting the dots difficult but not impossible.
    As I have been working on a powerpoint for this I may just use yours since it has the same background I was using and is nearly identical (except yours is better) except for graphics and objects.
    Thanks again.
