For those interested in the reasoning behind changing to a 4-hour
training as explained by our Professional Council Training Person:
It's what the leaders want--from exit polls at training sessions.
Question: Who knows where they were doing these polls? No one I've
had at training has been polled, how about any of you out there?
If you read your 'SCOUTING' magazine,(Sept 98) pg. 12, center:
New pack award for trained leadership
"The new Training 2000 Awrd recognized Cub Scout packs for their
efforts to deliver a quality program by making sure all Cub Scouts and
Webelos Scouts have trained den leaders.
Packs will receive a special 'Training 2000' streamer for the pack
flag if every den leader has completed basic training as of Dec 31.
(In situations involving a change of den leaders, the leader who spent
the majority of the year in the position may be counted).
Special certificates will be awarded to the district Cub Scout
training chairman, district training chairman, and career staff of
each district in which at least 50 percent of Cub Scout and Webelos
den leaders have completed basic training for their position as of
Councils also will be recognized.
The award will continue in 1999 and 2000. Application forms will be
made available for packs to complete in in January 1999."
NOW, if you add up the 4 hours of 'basic training' with the additional
8 hours of supplemental training and add the Youth Protection (@ 64+
minutes), and now there's going to be another required training (see
page 10) New training emphasizes safety at unit level", to be repeated
I'd like to ask a question of the list--what will be considered into
the Basic Training by the end of the year?
Our Council is having a meeting of District trainers on the 29th and
I'll be glad to share what's considered trained after that; right now
I'm not sure.
With a little luck, we'll get to see the new 'Health and Safety
Course' at that meeting.
Another question before ending:
How many other councils have removed Roundtable from Commissioner
Staff to the Training Staff?
A Beaver and a Buffalo, too!
