- Only one den leader training. Since all of the programs have a similar format, there won’t be separate trainings for Tiger and Webelos den leaders. Once you take a Leader-Specific Training Course (online or in person) and Youth Protection Training, you will have satisfied the requirements of a trained leader.
- It wouldn’t hurt to take a course on the new program (watch the website for training dates)
- Once you are trained, you can move to Wood Badge Training, which is an Advanced Adult Leader Training.
- Uniform change: The neckerchief can now be worn with an activity (class B) uniform.
- Scouting.org/programupdates has the latest information
Scoutbook.com is a new optional resource for tracking advancement, unit blog, etc. It costs $1/Scout. The district or council could pay the fee and get a discount (if over 3,000 Scouts). A license is needed to do data entry, but not to set up an account. The license for the unit would have to be arranged through the council.
Note: this is evolving as Scoutbooks is integrated into the BSA system.
