Trainer’s EDGE

Thursday, August 8 and 15, 2013 6:00 PM – 9:30 PM

Huntsville Scout Service Center 2211 Drake Avenue, Huntsville, AL 35805

Trainer's EDGE is BSA's trainer development course designed to help Scouters put into practice the EDGE training model (Explain, Demonstrate Guide & Enable) and gain self- confidence through hands-on training experiences.

Trainer's EDGE brings to life the EDGE model taught in Troop Leadership Training, Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmaster Specific Training, National Youth Leadership Training, and Wood Badge. Participants are given opportunity to prepare and practice a training session of their choice, using materials, equipment, and/or props that they bring with them to the course.

Participants should include those individuals that will be delivering training to adults and youth leaders in all parts of the Scouting program:

University of Scouting instructors Wood Badge and NYLT staff
District and council trainers
Roundtable staff members

Pack trainers
Any Scouter interested in improving their presentation skills

The Trainer’s EDGE will be held on two consecutive Thursdays, August 8 and 15 from 6:00 PM until 9:30 PM. You must attend both nights to complete the course. The cost of the course is $4 plus $10 if you want a yellow Trainer’s neckerchief. Check-in starts at 5:45 PM with instruction starting at 6:00 PM.
