Trainers EDGE

Event Details

Trainer's EDGE is BSA's trainer development course designed to help Scouters put into practice the EDGE training model and gain self-confidence through hands-on training experiences. The purpose of the Trainer’s EDGE course is to provide and help develop the platform skills of a trainer. It is meant to raise the level of skill a trainer brings to the learning 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.  This is part of a continuous process of updating trainers with the latest training methods, principles, and technologies.

This course is designed for both youth or adults. Who should attend this training?        

  • District and council trainers
  • Merit badge counselors -- including summer and winter camp staff including youth
  • Roundtable staff members
  • Pack trainers
  • Commissioner trainers
  • NYLT & Wood Badge staff
  • Troop guides or instructors (youth)
  • Unit Leaders

Participants must prepare a presentation (about five minute duration) before the course and bring the material, equipment, and/or props they need to deliver the presentation.  They will be given an opportunity to practice this presentation in a small group setting and receive feedback.  The topic of the presentation is at the discretion of the presenter, Scouting topics/skills are always good. Additionally, participants will prepare a second presentation during the course, practice it with their small group and receive feedback.
