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 earlier this year. 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.

Online training is also available by clicking the link: When entering click on the E-Learning link under the Training header located on the left-side menu. Then click on the Cub Scouts tab and voila!... all leader training is at your convenience.

If you do not have a MyScouting account, there are simple instructions with a demonstration video on the landing page that will help you create one.

In addition to the opportunity for online training, all four Cub Scout leader courses are supported by a printed syllabus, some with a DVD, to assist council and district training teams in conducting instructor-led experiences. The catalog number for this resource is 34815.
