The Trainer's EDGE

Every boy deserves trained leaders....

                                   and every leader deserves capable trainers.

"The Trainer's EDGE" is advanced training for all adult leaders who want great training and presentation skills. This replaces "TRAIN the TRAINER" and the Trainer Development Conference.  This training is targeted for all Scouters who deliver training, including District and Council Training and Roundtable Staffs.

The purpose of "The Trainer's EDGE" is to develop the presentation skills of the trainer, with a focus on the participants.

It is required for all Wood Badge and NYLT staffs, and ON-BELAY, SILVER MOCCASIN, and KODIAK youth and adult staff members.  It is recommended for all camp staffs as well.
This action-packed day consists of learning about the following skills:
1. Why and How We Train Leaders
2. How Adults Learn
3. Communication
4. Characteristics of a Good Trainer
5. Planning
6. Arrangements
7. Training Technology
        A. Computers in Training
