What is a Trainer Course?

Leave No Trace trainer courses are designed to instill the values of the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics into environmentally aware participants. At the end of the course, trainers will have gained knowledge of the seven Leave No Trace principles, along with the values of outdoor ethics, and will have the ability to hold awareness workshops for their pack, troop, or crew.

Scout Service & Training Center

You are cordially invited to Cub Scout Leader Specific Training. The purpose of Scouting is to teach values and ethical behavior, using a program of fun and learning that is interesting, exciting, and engaging for our youth members. This is accomplished through the efforts and dedication of thousands of volunteer leaders. They cannot be successful in this vital mission without a thorough knowledge of what they are trying to accomplish and how to go about it. And that knowledge comes through training.
