ALL trained leaders view the video as part of their formal basic training,
but HERE in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Area they are testing a NEW mandatory
2 hour course! It is SEPARATE from basic training and ALL leaders have to
have this new CERTIFICATION before they can be allowed to have close contact
with children (take a troop or den camping). I am pretty sure that this
program will eventually find its way to the NATIONAL level.
Its nice to know that BSA indeed sees this as a growing concern and wants
to provide the proper emphasis for it.
I am sure I don't have all the details to this new program since it was
new to me too, but I will be taking it soon so I am sure I can report more
once I complete it.
