Event Details

Purpose of the Course

The Trainers EDGE replaces the Trainer Development Conference (BSA 500) as the required trainthetrainer course for Wood Badge and NYLT staffs. The purpose of the Trainers EDGE course is to provide and help develop the platform skills of a trainer. It is meant to supplement the practice offered through Wood Badge and NYLT staff development, with a focus on the participant, while raising the level of skill a trainer brings to the staff experience. Only practice can polish these skills, but this course is intended to “train the trainer” on behaviors and resources while offering handson experience in methods and media. 

Participants should prepare a presentation (about five-to-ten minute duration) before the course and bring the material, equipment, and/or props they need to deliver the presentation.  (NOTE:  Space will be limited)  They will be given an opportunity to practice this presentation in a small group setting and receive feedback.  The topic of the presentation is at the discretion of the presenter, Scouting topics/skills are always good. Additionally, participants will prepare a second presentation during the course, practice it with their small group and receive feedback.

The course is designed for individuals who will be delivering training to adults and youth leaders in all parts of the Scouting program:

  • Unit, District, & Council Trainers
  • Merit Badge Counselors -- including Summer and Winter camp staff
  • Roundtable Staff members
  • Commissioner Staff
  • NYLT & Wood Badge staff
  • Troop Guides or Instructors
  • Unit Leaders
  • Just about anyone!

This is a FREE training event.  

NOTE:  Lunch will not be provided.  We will have a lunch break.  Please plan to either "brown bag" your lunch or you can grab something at one of several locations close to the Council Office.
