The Scouter's Key is the generic term applied to the award. It can be
earned as a Scoutmaster, Varsity Coach, Explorer advisor, etc. Similar

The knot is the Scouter's Key knot. When you put the Boy Scout device
on it, it means you earned it as a Scoutmaster.
The Leadership training guide is the book that has all the little
pamphlets handed to adult leaders to earn their knots. It includes Cub

and 1 as CM), not three as it had been previously. In case anyone cared
(as I did a week ago.)
