Have you wondered exactly what you have to do to wear the “Trained” badge that you see on some Cub Scout leaders’ left sleeve?
Since the online training has changed, what exactly do you need to take to ensure that you’re fully trained?
To answer these questions, the Boy Scouts of America has published a document with the requirements.
The Cub Scout Position Trained Requirements document has information for these positions:
- Assistant Cubmasters
- Den Leaders
- Committee Chairmen
- Committee Members
The document divides the lessons into three groups:
- Lessons that should be taken before the first meeting
- Lessons that should be completed during the first 30 days
- Lessons that must be completed to be considered position trained
The nice thing about this chart is that it lists how long each online segment will last. If you only have 10 minutes, you can find a lesson that takes that amount of time or less.
Click on this link to go directly to the document. You can then download or print it.
Don’t forget that you need to take Youth Protection Training to be a BSA registered volunteer for any position.
Have you completed the training for your position?
Yours in Scouting,
