Parents – do you want to get more involved with the troop but don’t know where to start?  This is a great place to start and doesn’t require a lot of your time.
Please consider taking ASM training in October, followed by IOLS (Introduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills) in November.  As an Assistant Scoutmaster you can
be as involved as you want.  Start by dipping your toe in the water with training, then help be part of the adult leadership in meetings or campouts!  Once trained, you
will not be “assigned” a role.  Your role is up to you!
If these dates for District ASM training won’t work for you, please refer to e-mail sent last week for the Council’s ASM training on Saturday, Oct 1 at Camp Wisdom.  You will then do the same IOLS.
Please contact Chris Kiger with any questions.  The troop will reimburse you upon successful completion of this training.

This position specific training is required for all Scout Masters and assistant Scout Masters. It is also recommended for committee members and other interested adults.
It is strongly recommended that the "Boy Scout Leader Fast Start", then "Youth Protection", then the "This is Scouting" online courses be taken first.
However, Fast Start and This Is Scouting are no longer required to be considered fully trained.
It is also recommended that this course be taken before "Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills" (IOLS) which is also a required training. All of them are required to be fully trained
Sign up for IOLS here….

Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills is the required outdoor training for all Scoutmasters, assistant Scoutmasters, Varsity Scout coaches, and Venture Crew Advisers.
The trainings of "Fast Start", "Youth Protection", and "This is Scouting", and position specific “Leader Specific” should be taken first.
It is $30 early (online a weak ahead) or $40 late registration. The 7:30 pm Tuesday orientation is at the McKinney LDS building, 2801 Eldorado Pkwy, where round table is held.
