Venturing Training

Training is available to help you become a better leader for your Crew.  Training is offered online, in classrooms, and outdoors.  Classes are for current registered leaders and for anyone who may want to be a leader.

To be considered a fully "Trained" leader, you need to complete the following:

  • Venturing Leader Specific Training
  • Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS)

NOTE: Scouting used to require "Fast Start Training" and "This is Scouting" training. Both are now optional and offered online here but are recommended.

All courses marked with an asterisk (*) are available online at in the eLearning Center.  You will be asked to create an account if you are new to scouting.  Visit the council page here to learn how to link your BSA ID to your training profile. The committee training is also offered in a classroom setting where you can discuss and exchange ideas with other leaders.  

Check the following resources to see what upcoming offerings of IOLS and the classroom version of leader-specific training are being offered.  You can enroll in training opportunities offered by the council or any district.
