Fundamentals of Training is the first part of the three-part train-the-trainer continuum (T3, or T-Cubed) in the Boy Scouts of America. This fun and interactive 4-hour course introduces teaching techniques and skills to new Scout trainers, but is also designed to help all Scouters, regardless of their experience, present effective training. Intended for both youth and adult trainers, the course will help those who might have trained for other organizations learn the BSA’s training techniques, and it will help freshen up the skills of current BSA trainers.
Upon completion of The Fundamentals of Training, new trainers will be able to apply the techniques they have learned across the BSA’s leadership development programs, from unit level youth leader training taught by youth for youth, to position specific and supplemental training for adult leaders. Upon completion of this first part, new trainers are coached and mentored by experienced trainers as they become comfortable with and confident in their training skills.
