The EXACT rule is as follows, from "Leadership Training, Plans, Procedures,
Materials, page 31. This rule has remained the same as long as I have been
registered in Boy Scouting (20 years).
"The Scouter's Training Award is the recognition for individuals who have not
obtained the Scouter's key but are trained and give consistent service to Boy
Scouting, Varsity Scouting, Exploring or are serving on a roundtable/huddle
A holder of the Souter's Key may NOT earn the Scouter's Award in the SAME
PROGRAM AREA. If a committee member of assistant unit leader (as in Assistant
Scoutmaster) has earned the Scouter's training Award, however, the Key MAY be
earned if that individual becomes a unit leader (i.e. SM) in the SAME program
area and meets the training, tenure, and performance requirements as a unit
leader. If a Scouter who has earned the Scouter's Key changes PROGRAMS (a
Scoutmaster becoming an associate Advisor, for example), the award may be
earned in the program in which he or she is currently registered."
Also - as reported a few months ago in SCOUTING -- one person may earn tenure
and awards in various position at the same time PROVIDED they are registered on
the charters for EACH position -- and -- they can ONLY be registered in ONE
position per unit, unless it is the chartered org. rep, who can also be
registered as a member of committee or committee chairman.
Your trainers were correct as far as they went -- but not clear enough.
