Our Council offers CSLBT two different ways - two evenings or on
Saturday. The new update to CSLBT has extended training by an hour. I
found the most informative part of training was the split session. That
part has been extended from 55 minutes to 75 minutes.- still not enough
time adequately teach the hands on stuff. Seems odd that training has
gone from 8 hours to 6 hours to 4 hours to 5 hours.
The key to making it successful to get others to come is to make it
exciting so those who just went through training will go back and
advertise for you. The need for 50% trained leaders to earn Quality Unit
will hopefully be an incentive for leaders to go through training. I
agree that one of the ways is to give a few hours of traiing then let
them come back for more. When I went through training the first time in
1989, the course was spread out over foour Wednesday nights. We were fed
a little info, could take it home to digest, come back for a little more,
ask questions, etc.... This is one reason why we offer two nights.
