IOLS Scouts BSA Outdoor Leader Training

This training is for Scouts BSA and Venture Leaders. Working as patrols, this hands-on course provides adult leaders the practical outdoor skills they need to lead Scouts in the out-of-doors. Upon completion, leaders should feel comfortable teaching Scouts the basic skills required to obtain the First Class rank.

Along with Scoutmaster Specifics, this course is required of all direct contact leaders registered in Scout Troops in order to be considered “trained”.
