Adult Training & Awards

When leaders understand the why and how of Scouting, they provide a quality, fun-filled program for boys. It is often said, “Every Scout deserves a trained leader,” but it is also true that “Every leader deserves training.”

Completing training will not only make your job as a leader easier, but it will make it more fulfilling and will give you confidence as you fulfill your responsibilities.

How can I get trained?

  • Training Requirements – Everything you need to know to become fully trained for your position.
  • E-Learning – Online courses are now offered for most positions. You now no longer must seek out classroom offerings to be fully trained for your position.
  • Live Instructor Training – The Shelby District and the Greater Alabama Council also provides classroom training during the year. Follow the calendar to learn when the next training course is scheduled. The information box (to the right) shows recent training blog posts as well. Another great resource is the Shelby District Newsletter.
  • Roundtable – A wealth of information is shared montly at the Shelby District Roundtable.

Where do I find training events?

If you are looking for a training events such as IOLS, BALOO, Wood Badge and others, visit the Activities page, the Shelby District Newsletter, and the Shelby District calendar.
