Scoutmaster & Assistant Specific Training


Who should take this training?

New or existing untrained BSA Scoutmasters (highest-ranking adult volunteer leader working with youth in a Scouts BSA Troop) and Assistant Scoutmasters.

Why should I take this training?

You’ve taken on the role of Scoutmaster or Assistant Scoutmaster; thank you! It’s a big responsibility but you’re not in it alone: all of your Troop Committee wants to help you be successful and run a fun program for all the Scouts in your troop. The best way to start is to get trained with the basic information you need.

Scoutmaster-Specific Training introduces you to everything you need to know about running a Scouts BSA Troop, which is different from a Cub Scout Pack. In particular, you and your fellow adult leaders are now in more of a “mentor” position where your job is to help your youth members learn and practice leadership. While this training will not answer every single question you have, it is a great start. This course, combined with Youth Protection Training and the Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS) course, will make you a “fully trained” Scouts BSA leader.

Scoutmaster-Specific Training is available online at, so you can complete it in 10-minute modules during free time. You can also take the course in person; an advantage of doing it this way is you’ll be able to ask questions of and get feedback. Scoutmaster-Specific Training is only a half-day course (roughly 3 hours).
