This is an all virtual event. The College of Commissioner Science is a type of annual commissioner conference modeled after college courses and degrees. The purpose is to provide ongoing practical training for all commissioners. Over 10 courses will be offered IN A VIRTUAL SETTING. Be prepared for meaningful training, good fellowship, and information on the latest Scouting developments.
Who should attend:
New Commissioners looking to increase their knowledge and skills, Seasoned Commissioners who want to update their training and improve their skills and Scouters who are interested in learning about Commissioners and what they do.
We plan to offer two tracks with courses leading to the Bachelor or Master of Commissioner Science degrees. There is a great deal of change occurring in Scouting. This is an opportunity to learn about those changes but also to meet and collaborate with Commissioners from other Councils.
Remember, a trained Commissioner is an effective Commissioner.
Registrants for the bachelor track should take all of the bachelor courses plus the masters courses for periods 4 & 7; registrants for the masters track should take all of the masters courses.
