IOLS is an outdoor, hands-on course designed to expose adult ScoutBSA and Venturing leaders to First Class scout skills using the EDGETM Method and presented in a Troop/Patrol setting. Presentations include flag etiquette, Leave No Trace, Interfaith worship, knots & lashings, wood tools, fire building, cooking, map & compass, first aid, backpacking, plant & animal identification, and more.
Every youth deserves a trained leader! All adult direct contact leaders in ScoutBSA and Venturing with outdoor programs must have IOLS to be considered “trained” and wear the “Trained” patch. This training is required for Scoutmasters, Advisors and their assistants to be re-chartered.
