In our Council we have the rule that Webelos Leaders cannot get the
"trained" patch until they have completed both "Basic" and "Webelos Leader
Outdoor" training. Can I run this situation out by you all so that my
training team can discover what the other areas of the country are doing?
The real problem is this: The leaders will go through Cub Leader Basic, but
then have to wait to get their Trained patch until they have gone through
Webelos Outdoor Leader Training. Many of the new Webelos leaders are
beefing because they took the long training session and we only hold WOLT
in the Spring, so even thought they have been Basic Trainined, they have to
wait until Spring to get their trained patch.
How do your Councils handle this? I have thought of 3 ideas so far:
1) a device for WOLT to be placed on the "trained" patch from "Basic"
2) a smaller patch about the size of a nickle as a "Supplemental" training
patch to be worn under the "trained" patch (this could also come in a YP
patch for "Youth Protection" training),
3) a "trained" patch in a different color stitching such as a forest green
There must be other Councils with the same problem and other solutions.
