Fundamentals of Training

About

The Fundamentals of Training is the first part of the three-part train-the trainer continuum (T3) in Scouting and is intended for both youth and adult trainers. This session is designed to introduce new Scouting trainers to teaching techniques and skills. This first part of the T3 continuum, The Fundamentals of Training, is designed to help Scouters, regardless of their experience, present effective training.

The purpose of this course is to introduce experienced Scouters and Scouts to the skills needed to provide effective training. At the conclusion of the training, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the principles of how people learn.
  • Understand four primary methods of instruction used by the BSA.
  • Practice the BSA’s training techniques.

Trainer’s EDGE is the second part of the continuum. As trainers develop their training skills, Trainer’s EDGE provides an additional opportunity for trainers to enhance their abilities. Trainer’s EDGE also supplements the training development sessions offered during faculty development for advanced leadership training courses and increased familiarity with the EDGE model that is used throughout the training.

The third part of the continuum is the Master Trainer course taught at one of the BSA’s national volunteer training centers or a regional “cluster council” course. The Master Trainer course does not create a designation for the participants; it teaches the skills and techniques used to address council and district training objectives. Using the analyze-plan-manage-evaluate process, participants are ideally suited to create and implement training improvement plans that achieve Journey to Excellence goals.
