Trainer's EDGE

The Trainer’s EDGE replaces the Trainer Development Conference (BSA 500) as the required train‐the‐trainer course for Wood Badge, NYLT, and Council training staffs.  

The purpose of the Trainer’s 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 hands‐on experience in methods and media.

Strategic Training Planner

This course has been developed to provide key individuals within the District and Council, the skills necessary to be a critical resource to help improve the Council Training Program.

The course will focus on developing the servant leadership skills of the participants, and teach them the skills necessary to analyze, plan, manage, and evaluate the training plan they will help develop.

This course supercedes the "Master Trainer" course.

Every Scout deserves a trained leader.
