Boy Scout training courses are designed to help volunteers deliver the Scouting program confidently, effectively, and safely. These courses are standardized nationally for delivery within the council by district volunteers. Some training is of a supplemental nature such as Wilderness and Remote First Aid, Aquatics Training, and NRA-certified training, among others.

In recognition of the importance of training for units, districts, and the council at large, select discounted event fees are offered to leaders from units who achieve an 80% ratio of trained leaders as indicated by the National Council’s training database in More details of this discount are available on our Outstanding Unit Award page.

For any training event where your registration can be paid at the Council Service Center, you may complete the Training Registration Form instead of registering online and submit it in person or by e-mail to the event’s point of contact.
