What about Leader-Specific Training required for registered positions?
Since most BSA basic leader training courses are now offered online, they will generally not be offered at University of Scouting. (exception is Youth Protection, which will be offered). Scouters needing help with online courses will have an opportunity to use a small computer lab to take their needed online courses with experienced Scouters available to assist them as needed. Space is limited.
Where can I find the course list?
The course list is available in December as a full list of courses being offered, with descriptions and as a schedule grid to assist with registration. These documents are available for download in the link section of this main page titled: University of Scouting Catalog. When you schedule your classes when you register, you will not be able to double book your schedule.
Any other questions, please feel free to email the University of Scouting Team at UofS@SenecaWaterways.org.
