For Cub Scout Leaders

Cub Scout Leader Fast Start
Cub Scout Leader Fast Stan Training can be found on the Internet at approved council Web sites.

Cub Scout Leader Fast Start (No.AV-01V022)
Is a package of position-specific video programs accompanied by a Cub Scout Leader Fast Start Viewer Guide (No. AV-01G022). Each program gives leaders information on planning and conducting their first meeting, and even demonstrates one they can use. Five segments are included in the video:

· Tiger Cub Den Leader
· Cub Scout Den Leader
· Webelos Den Leader
· Cubmaster
· Pack Committee

Pack-administered self-study is the primary method of delivery for Fast Start training. A pack trainer usually supports the new leader during this training period.

New Leader Essentials ( NLE )
New Leader Essentials is an introductory session that highlights the values, aims, history, funding, and methods of Scouting. It addresses how these aims and methods are reached in an age- appropriate style within Cub Scouting, Boy Scouting, Varsity Scouting, and Venturing. Videos, discussions, and hands-on reinforcement are presented during the 90-minute training session. Ideally, all unit-based volunteers—Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, and Venturing leaders—take this session at the same time, so they understand that they are all striving for the same results with the youth they serve. Each leader completes New Leader Essentials training only once.

Cub Scout Leader Specific Training ( CLST )
Tiger Cub den leaders, Cub Scout den leaders, Webelos den leaders, Cubmasters, and pack committee members can complete this training in one day or two or three evenings. The leader is considered trained upon completion of New Leader Essentials and the Leader Specific training for that position.
