Online Training Module Overhaul Comes January 2 - Actions You Might Want To Take

Posted on Dec 3 2018 - 3:19pm

The BSA has announced that "Position-specific training courses for Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts (Scouts BSA) are being updated and will be available January 2, 2019. Any progress on current training materials will not carry over to the new learning plan so plan to complete any in-progress training before December 31, 2018."   The Training staff advises that "These modules are designed for family Scouting. The Cub Scout modules will be totally redesigned to reduce the time spent in training as well as provide a new mobile-friendly interface."  Things you might want to do:

  • If you are in the process of taking those modules with a goal of being "positioned trained" by taking them all ... complete all of them for your position by December 31, 2018.
  • Otherwise, it appears they will "wipe clean" your old modules and you'll start over.  

Under this 1/2/2019 structure, there's some interesting requirements: everyone (Cubmaster and Assistants, Den Leaders and Assistants, Committee Chair and Committee Members) takes these twelve modules: Welcome, Aims and Methods, Advancement, Uniforms, Den Management, Preparing for Outdoor Adventure, Make it Safe, Involving Adults, Pack Structure, Denners and Den Chiefs (?!?), Early Childhood Development, Continuing the Journey.   There are another 11 modules that some, but not all, take: 

Recruiting for Scouts BSA Troops ... Go. There's nothing stopping you

Posted on Dec 3 2018 - 12:02pm

Troops -- and Scouts in Troops -- should be ready, willing and able to recruit youth -- right now, you should be in contact with 5th Grade Cub Scouts to help them cross over into a Troop, and all year 'round you can (and your Scouts can) recruit 6th Graders and others age 11 or above ... see this posting on "Bryan's Blog" for tips, and the attached if you want to start with flyers.  (P.S.: Your Scouts can probably create better photo / video / social media messages for their friends if you let them)  Or you can show them this Atlanta Area Council Movie Trailer from the AAC YouTube site.  And from across the pond, see this video, which is really really well done, as is this one.   

Happy New Year: Scoutbook is Free Starting 1/1/2019

Posted on Dec 3 2018 - 12:00pm

See this Bryan on Scouting Blog for Details.  Since ScoutBook was announced to be the new version of "internet advancement reporting" through a yet-to-be-released function called "Scoutbook Lite", this is going to be worth investigating by every Unit.  On a related note, in a private message the National Director of Cub Scouting reports that the (not very) old "Cub Hub" or "Learning Library" has been allowed to languish (they never even updated the requirements when so many changed in the 16-17 program year) because ... they will use ScoutBook to share information.
