In the Chief Seattle Council we have four districts in the South end who
have bonded together. Foothills, Aquilla, Thunderbird and Green River.
We call it our Quad District Training Team. We have training staff
meetings every third Wed of the month, 12 MO a year. Our current staff
consists of 90% Wood Badge trained members and we have 26 members on
this course. We rotate the Scoutmaster/Course Director position through
the four districts. You start as the ASPL then SPL then SM/CD each one
from a separate district.
We use the guide for our course and have a Long Saturday, a Wednesday
added a Wednesday and do "Youth Protection" then a Fri night Saturday.
The first Saturday we have moved Advancement training to the morning and
the Troop Meeting to after lunch. We currently have eight patrols
registered with a training troop of 64. If you miss one part,
spring/fall, you can attend the next spring/fall, and make it up. If
you miss the overnight we suggest you come for the second wed to attach
to a patrol. We also do Youth Protection training by units and if a
participant has attended this with their unit we do not expect them to
attend the one during Basic Training.
The overnight includes a troop wide potluck on Saturday dinner. We then
award trained strips and certificates.
