Leaders must be trained in each of their registered position (i.e. Assistant Scoutmaster, Committee Member, Merit Bage Counselor).

Everyone must complete their Leader Specific Training to become a registered BSA member.

Everyone must also complete Youth Protection Training every two years and it must not expire within the year of recharter. Every Fall the troop kicks off the annual BSA Recharter and submits the package and the fees to Tidewater Council by the 1st of December.

Council has scheduled several Introduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills (IOLS) Training dates for Assistant Scoutmasters. This course is not available on-line.
