"trained" for the job.

Nathan, that's Correct... the 'trained' patch implicitly goes with whatever
position patch you have on your uniform... therefor, if you are a SM and
have been to SF, then you are a "trained SM". If you are an EA (Explorer
Advisor) and have been to ELI (Explorer leadership Institute) or the
Exploring Basic Training, then you are a "trained Exploring Advisor". Same
with youth leadership positions, various other unit positions, etc. A CM or
other Cub Leader can't wear the 'trained' pathc for attending anything
besides CLBT, a Scout leader needs to go to SLBT, etc.

Most folks wear the position patch for the highest position in BSA that they
hold... I'm on the Council's Exploring Committee, a Post COR, a Troop MC,
and an OA Advisor... I wear the Council Committee patch.
Most folks are also only (paid) registered for 1 position, so that should be
the one you wear. (Normally the one you pay for, is the highest or most
important one to you). I actually am only a multiple on two, and pay for
two, but that's by choice.
