Cub Scout Leader Training

Fast Start On LineThe training program of the Boy Scouts of America provides this information and helps leaders become confident in carrying out their responsibilities. Each Scout leader's job is different. This is the main reason why training leaders is so vital to the success of the program. Not only must they know how important their jobs are, but they must be acquainted with the methods used to attract and hold boys in Scouting.



Required training courses for all Cub Scout Leaders is now
available online at:  

Courses include:

  1. "Cubmaster & Asst. Cubmaster  Leader Position-Specific Training"

  2. "Den Leader Position-Specific Training"

  3. "Pack Committee Training" 

  4. "Youth Protection,"

  5. "Fast Start," and

  6. "This Is Scouting"

The courses have been updated to support the new Cub Scout Delivery Method rolled out in June 2015. Now, den leaders and assistants, Cubmasters and assistants, pack trainers, and pack committee chairs and members can now learn the how-to’s for successfully conducting an engaging den and pack program and can become confident in the role each plays.
