BALOO & IOLS 2021

Event Details

A strong and active outdoor program is critical for retaining and growing our youth membership, be it for Cub Scouts, Scouts, or Venturing. The Blue Ridge Mountains Council (BRMC) will therefore be offering two important courses.  Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO) and Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS) are two very important courses for adult leaders and they are not available online.  These courses can ony be completed by attending in-person classes offered by the BRMC.

The BALOO training (C32) is required for all packs and dens that want to bring their Cub Scouts outdoors.  At least one BALOO-trained leader must be present during the entire outing.  Hence, to avoid cancellation of events, it is recommended that the pack has at least two BALOO-trained leaders so as to ensure that this minimum is met.  This is a one-time training that does not expire.

The IOLS training (S11) is required for all Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters to be trained for their positions.  It is also suitable for other adult leaders in troops and packs that plan to camp with troops or that plan to transfer to a troop.  This is a one-time training that does not expire.

All prereguisite training must be completed by your class's registration deadline.

BALOO Prereguisite Training (online):

  • Youth Protection Training (YPT) that is current through the end of the calendar year of the training (must be renewed every two years).
  • Hazardous Weather Training (SCO_800) that is current through the end of the calendar year of the training (must be renewed every two years).
  • BALOO Prereguisite Training V2 (SCO_280, SCO_281, SCO_282, SCO_283)
  • These weekends require being fully vaccinated per CDC standard: October 8-9, 15-16 and April 1-2, 15-16

IOLS Prereguisite Training (online):

  • Youth Protection Training (YPT) that is current through the end of the calendar year of the training (must be renewed every two years).
  • Hazardous Weather Training (SCO_800) that is current through the end of the calendar year of the training (must be renewed every two years).
  • Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmaster Specific Training (S24 or online version) (one-time training that does not expire).
  • These weekends require being fully vaccinated per CDC standard: October 8-9, 15-16 and April 1-2, 15-16

While we are offering both courses during each training weekend, you can complete only one course at a time.  If you desire both courses, you will need to take the first course one training weekend and the second course another traing weekend.

You may register for any available training weekend.  Your are not limited to the training weekend hosted by your district.

Remember:  Every Scout Deserves a Trained Leader
