The Training Continuum

The Boy Scouts of America's training plan not only provides training for new leaders to help them get started in the right direction, but it also provides continuing training for all leaders. In this way, leaders continue to learn through experience and from additional training opportunities. They stay up to date on the Cub Scout program and acquire new skills that help them do a better job with the boys.

  1. Fast Start Training
  2. Basic training
  3. Supplemental training
  4. Advanced training

The total training plan is all-inclusive and is designed to deliver the training that leaders need when they need it. Not all leaders will be directly involved in all aspects of the plan, but they should be aware of the opportunities available to them in this continuum of training.
