Cubmasters and Assistant Cubmasters
This course is intended to provide Cubmasters and assistant Cubmasters with the basic information they need to conduct successful pack meetings. The course is based on the seven parts of a pack meeting using the Pack Meeting Plans.
The Den Leader Position-Specific Training course provides Cub Scout den leaders with the basic information they need to conduct successful den meetings. The course is intended to be conducted in a small group setting of about six to eight participants, similar to a den meeting.
Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters
The purpose of Scoutmaster Position-Specific training is to provide an active, fun, and positive learning experience for new and experienced Scoutmasters to learn and apply proven techniques for running an effective Boy Scout troop. Scoutmasters will learn how to meet the aims of Scouting by applying the eight methods of the Boy Scouting program during the four main sessions of the course:
• Patrol Method
• Support Team
• Annual Planning

In the Montana Council, Youth Protection certification must be renewed every year. If your certification does not have a “2017” on its issue date, it is time to renew again!

We all know that every Adult Leader in Scouting in the Montana Council needs to complete Youth Protection training every year.
Have you completed YPT for 2017 yet? If not, we are going to try and make it easy for you. From now on, at every Lewis and Clark District Roundtable we will supply an online Youth Protection Training Kiosk where you can complete all required youth protection training.
So, please come to roundtable on Tuesday, January 10 at 6:30pm at the LDS Stake Center at 1015 15th Ave S! In addition to some great information and fellowship, you will also be able to complete some necessary training. Let’s get 100% YPT certified as a district for 2017 as early as possible!
Greetings from the District Training Committee!
Every Leader needs to take Youth Protection Every Year in the Montana Council. No exceptions.
While we need to be 100% vigilant on Youth Protection, we are trying to make YPT an easy and achievable goal for every unit, commissioner, merit badge counselor and leader in our District.
We will be holding Youth Protection Training as our District Roundtable program on October 11 at the LDS Stake Center, 1015 15th Ave S at 6:30 pm. We ask every adult in every unit to attend. We promise to lead an engaging discussion and to be very respectful of your time!
Yours In Scouting,
Aaron Weissman, firstname.lastname@example.org, 406-868-8982
