Fast Track Training – The Fast Start program has been designed to provide an immediate comfort level for new leaders and enables them to say, ‘I can do this!’, but it should be soon followed by more comprehensive training. If you will be taking your position-specific training right away, then this Fast Start Training is not needed.
This is Scouting – A new online training session that replaces New Leader Essentials, picks up when Fast Start leaves off with six modules: The Mission of Scouting; Programs for All ages; Scouting Is Fun; Scouting in the Community; Keeping Our Youth Safe; and Scouting’s Legacy. Taken through the Online Learning Center.
