Mike, et al:
Always remember one thing -- BSA has the "biggest printing press in the sky!"
Thus, if it can be printed, might be useful, we have it somewhere. Your job,
"if you chose to accept it" is to LOCATE where BSA prints it! A treasure hunt
that I find a great deal of fun as well as interesting as all get out!
Here is the first BSA source for your training summary, and structure:
Leadership Training Plans, Procedures, Materials (the "bible" for trainers for
the past 20 that I know about), no. 4169, cost (last I looked) 2.75, according
to the manager of my Trading Post, my 1992 printing is the most current.
Be aware that THIS item is reprinted annually usually. To keep your info up to
date, be sure to include info from the Scouting Magazine, News Brief section,
as training changes, or clarifications are printed.
Inside this "bible" you will find among other items of interest"
1. pg. 5 the district training structure chart
2. complete info on "who is a trained leader" in each program
3. masters to be copied for keeping track of an individual's progress towards
training awards (and of course the REQUIREMENTS for each training award by
4. District/Council training responsbilities
5. How to determine needs, priorities, and make plans to fill
etc, etc, etc! (As the King of Siam said!)
Also, refer for Woodbadge info the the BSA publication, The History of
Woodbadge, which is outstanding in it's source of training info at that level.
ALWAYS read the first section (and believe it) of the basic training manuals for
CS and BS! These sections are very well researched, and full of information
that any trainer needs to know. I can probably type in the front sections of
these two manuals for your help, if you would like it.
