Why take Leader Training?


Well, Baden Powell once said "Every boy deserves a trained leader".  Adult leaders that participate in the BSA training program are well equipped to deliver the best program possible to our scouts.  Take a little time and sign up for a class.  You'll rarely wish you had done something else with your time.

You can register for all training classes on the Capitol Area Council website here:

Leader Specific Training

This all-important training is designed to drill down to specifics on your leadership position. Den Leaders will take a different class than Cubmasters, and Cubmasters will take a different class than Scoutmasters, and so on.  Therefore, if you have taken a LST class for a position other than the one you are in now, you are strongly encouraged to sign up for a class that will address the specifics of your new position.
