<< My question is - Who is responsible for assembling and maintaining the
"Trained" records when such training is completed? I was under the
impression that since the District (or Council) provided the training,
that these records were forwarded to Council Services and then
integrated into the unit and individual records.
It appears that, in our case, this has not occurred; certainly it has
not been updated to the unit rosters. I do not have copies of the annual
charters to see if the information was included on them.
So, how do you do it in your Units, Districts, and Councils? >>
If the system works as intended the training data should be updated when
training reports are received at the Council Service Center. Sometimes
reports may be delayed or misplaced by the trainers and never reach the
office. In such cases the unit has the opportunity to update the information
each time they recharter. It is one of the items that should be checked
along with Boys Life and personal data for currency each year at recharter
In some Districts the Training Committee will also conduct a yearly
training inventory to see what training is needed, usually including a
contact with the unit to verify the information on the unit roster.
Scoutnet 2000 has caused some recordkeeping problems, both in entry and
data migration from the previous system. Having long experience with
computer data bases, I firmly believe in regular data audits to make sure the
computer data is correct.
