Scoutmaster Specific Training is required for all Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters, and must be taken in conjunction with IOLS to be fully trained. Troop committee members, transitioning Webelos leaders and other adults expecting to support the success of a troop are also encouraged to attend.

  • The Role of the Scoutmaster
  • Troop Organization
  • Troop Meetings
  • Working with Boy Leaders: The Patrol Method
  • Patrol Leaders' Council
  • Outdoor Program
  • Advancement Program
  • Program Planning

Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills is the required outdoor training for all Scoutmasters, Assistant Scoutmasters, and Varsity Scout Coaches. The skills taught are based on the outdoor skills found in The Boy Scout Handbook. The course is also ideal for Venturing leaders because it focuses on skills that build confidence and competence in leaders conducting outdoor camping experience.


Outdoor Webelos Leader training is applicable for Webelos Den Leaders and their assistants, the Outdoor Leader Skills for Webelos Leaders course teaches outdoor-related skills through demonstration and hands-on practice. Webelos den leaders should attend this training before conducting Webelos overnight camping with the boys and parents of the den. In addition to covering basic camping skills, this training features planning campouts and finding resources


IOLS and OWL have been integrated with IOLS, so you will be receiving trained cards for both training classes – a two-for-one deal!!!
