Every Scout Deserves a Trained Leader!
Every Leader deserves training so s/he can successfully deliver the scouting program!
- Cub Scout Leaders are considered trained when they have completed Youth Protection, New Leader essentials, and Cub Scout Leader Specific training for their position.

Training of adults to successfully deliver the Boy Scout program has evolved into a well-presented, thorough, curriculum of courses to be completed in sequence. Here are the courses you need to fulfill your commitment of an adult leader.
Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS) is an essential part of basic training for leaders in Boy Scout troops. This training is required for Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters in every troop. It teaches the basic outdoor skills that boys will learn from Tenderfoot through First Class, which adults must also know. IOLS is also recommended for committee members who participate in outdoor activities, especially camping trips, with their troop.
