Commissioner College

Out of an abundance of caution, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the "2020 AAC College of Commissioner Science".

The college will be rescheduled ASAP once the current coronavirus pandemic is behind us. All registrations will remain valid until a new date is selected. Participants with a conflict on the new date will be able to request a refund at that time.


Thank you for your understanding and patience. We are all very excited to deliver you an excellent commissioner training event - once it is safe to do so.

The College of Commissioner Science is an annual supplemental training event for all BSA Commissioners. It’s an excellent opportunity for both new and experienced commissioners to expand their Commissioning skills, build their Scouting network, and share their experiences in Unit Service.

Each year, the Atlanta Area Council’s annual College of Commissioner Science provides classroom training on a broad range of topics relevant for commissioners. Courses are available for: Unit Commissioners, New-Unit Commissioners, Roundtable Commissioners, & District/Assistant District Commissioners.

Take a look at the 2020 Course Schedule!

To encourage participants to build on previous learnings, the college is structured in an academic format beginning with Bachelor Courses, followed by Master Courses and then rounding out training with the Doctor of Commissioner Science Degree. Different “Continuing Education” courses are offered each year for commissioners to continue their training beyond these degrees.
