The New Leader Training package provides the district training committee with tools to achieve 100 percent trained unit volunteers. It begins with the existing [[Fast Start Training]], continues through [[New Leader Essentials]], and is followed by [[Leader Specific Training]] for each adult's role in the unit.

New Leader Training

The New Leader Training is customized training to help leaders easily graduate through the courses quickly and with little duplication.

Online Fast Start Training is the first step for all new volunteers as soon as they register and before meeting with any youth member. Fast Start Training is tailored to the leader's position:

Training continues through with Leader Specific Training which provides more specialized information about the leader's particular position and an introduction to outdoor leader skills (for some leaders - see chart above).

Scouting provides ongoing training opportunities for leaders through EDGE, Wood Badge, BALOO, classes at Philmont Training Center, etc (see below).

All BSA-registered volunteers must also complete Youth Protection Training.
