Since no one else has responded, let me try.
Cub Scout Woodbadge training is more appropriately called Cub Scout
Trainer Woodbadge. It's focus is similar to the early days of Boy
Scout Woodbadge in that it trains trainers to train. The focus is
not on the CS skills but on how to train others in those skills. It
is for somewhat experienced CS Leaders (our region requires 2 years
membership in BSA before being eligible for Woodbadge). After the
course you are expected to make a comittment to providing training as
part of your "ticket". Most CS training is administered at the
District/Council level so yes, it prepares you for what is usually a
district level position.
Woodbadge will personally benefit you and any organization (scouting
or otherwise) in which you participate. Your pack will benefit from
the course in that your enthusiasm for the program will hopefully
increase as a result of the course.
This is coming from someone who has not yet been to Woodbadge (I'm
registered for a NE-CS course this summer). So any corrections to
this are welcome.
There was a posting recently about the course outline for Boy Scout
Woodbadge. Does anyone have similar information about Cub Scout
