Cub Scout Pack 584

Bothell, WA

Leader Training

BSA and Pack 584 are very committed to having adult volunteer leaders and parents trained so that, like the Scouts, they can “Be Prepared” to fill their roles, and “Do Their Best” in those roles. A variety of training courses are offered both online and live by Scouting volunteers in the Chief Seattle Council and in nearby councils. In addition to position-specific training, there are a number of very important training courses related to youth protection, hazardous weather and safety.

Training is only available to adults who are officially registered as adult leaders with the pack. This would be non-uniformed committee members (parents not currently serving as uniformed leaders) as well as uniformed leaders (Cubmaster, Assistant Cubmaster, Den Leaders, and Assistant Den Leaders). If you are not registered, please consider becoming registered and then taking the training. Much of the training listed below is available online, where you can do it on your own time and from the comfort of your home computer. To take the online training courses, you simply create a My Scouting account, login and take any of the training courses available. Once you have your BSA Membership ID number, you can update your My Scouting account and all training taken online will officially be tied to your BSA Membership.

Live training is usually scheduled on a Saturday, either half-day or full day. Occasionally, training will be a few hours on a weeknight. For those who want to move beyond the basic level of training, advanced Wood Badge Training occupies several weekends and requires an action plan (called a “ticket”) to put learned Wood Badge skills to work in your Scouting leadership position.
