Training

Tuesday September 26, 2017 - 7:00 pm

Council Service & Training Center

All newly approved or veteran Merit Badge Counselors, Scout leaders and anyone else who is involved with the Merit badge Process are invited to attend a FREE short Merit Badge Counselor training session sponsored by the Council Advancement Committee on the Merit Badge counseling process.  

 In Addition to presenting a comprehensive overview of the entire MB program, this session will focus on the responsibilities of a MB counselor.

Effective December 31, 2018, the Northeastern Pennsylvania Council will be requiring that all adults approved to be on a unit charter be trained for their designated position. If this is not done the adult will have to be removed from the unit charter until the training is complete.

To help units plan for this training requirement, NEPA Council has provided a number of training opportunities, for each position, on the council calendar. Please plan ahead and get trained before the December 31, 2018 deadline.

The Boy Scouts of America also provides many of these trainings online. Leaders can complete these trainings by going to http://my.scouting.org. and going to the training section of the page.  A video is also provided on the Council Traning Web Page will help guide you to these training opportunities.
