Trainer's EDGE

Trainer's EDGEAbout

Trainer's EDGE is BSA's latest version of the Training Conference that instructs leaders on better ways of making presentations at trainings and allows the participants to practice the EDGE training model (Explain, Demonstrate, Guide & Enable) and gain self-confidence through hands-on training experiences.

Participants should include those individuals that will be delivering training to adults and youth leaders in all parts of the Scouting program:

  •     University of Scouting instructors
  •     District and Council trainers
  •     Roundtable staff
  •     Unit trainers – Pack, Troop, Varsity and Venture/Venturing trainers
  •     Commissioner trainers
  •     NYLT & Wood Badge staff
  •     Order of the Arrow trainers
  •     Any Scout or Scouter who are interested in improving their training & presentation skills

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.
