What Constitutes a "Trained" Leader?
Scouters - Please see the note below from our Area Training Chairman related to what constitutes a "trained" leader. The document is linked into the message.
Good morning all!
Please remember that, in coordination that all that we already do, we must provide focus and leadership on our basic leader training – those courses which entitle us to wear the “Trained’ patch on our shirts. This foundational knowledge is critical to everything else we do in support of our youth. As a guide, I’ve attached a recently received document which outlines those required courses for each position throughout the Council. This is a living document and it encapsulates the “latest” training requirements for each position. I am waiting for an update on Chartered Org Rep training as I believe there is an error there for WA01 vs. WS10.
Encourage those who have been grandfathered in under old training classes to (re)take the current ones for their current position(s). It will not only bring them up to speed on the latest training information but sets a great example for the new leaders!

BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA
The Trainer's EDGE
Trainer's EDGE is BSA's trainer development course designed to help Scouters put into practice the EDGE training model and gain self-confidence through hands-on training experiences. Trainer's EDGE brings to life the EDGE model taught in Troop Leadership Training, Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmaster Specific Training, National Youth Leadership Training, and Wood Badge.
Trainer’s EDGE is the second part of the three-part train-the trainer continuum (T3) in Scouting. As trainers develop their training skills, Trainer’s EDGE provides an additional opportunity for trainers to enhance their abilities.

2015 EAGLE SCOUT DIRECTORY
Updated information collected from Eagle Scouts will be shared with local councils to help us stay in contact with Eagle Scouts who have moved into our council.
PCI will conduct its outreach to Eagle Scouts from April through November 2014. Please help them by updating your information when they contact you.
Wood Badge 2015
Wood Badge is the premier adult leadership development course for the Boy Scouts of America. Wood Badge teaches participants the basics of listening, communicating, valuing people, team development, situational leadership, problem solving, and managing conflict. Once the skill is learned, each member is given the opportunity to use the skill as a member of a successful working team. At the conclusion of the course, each participant develops a set of personal goals related to his or her Scouting role known as "the Ticket." Working toward these goals allows each participant to practice and demonstrate new skills.
The first weekend of Wood Badge 2015 will be held March 20-22 at Sky Ranch in Van TX. The second weekend of Wood Badge 2015 will be held April 24-26 at George W. Pirtle Scout Reservation in Gary TX.
Cost is $240.00 , which includes all of your housing expenses and meals, course materials, t-shirt and the Wood Badge beads and neckerchief.
