Mandatory Training Requirements

Training and trained leaders are fundamental to strong Scout units. Despite position-specific training being available online for all positions, these trainings being a one-time training for the leaders, and the Training Committee and District Training Chairs trying to work with units to get leaders trained, the Position-Specific Trained percentages for trained leaders in the Miami Valley Council continues to run between 46% – 52% per Central Region records. Miami Valley Council Boys Scouts of America has agreed to make training required. This mandatory training requirement will be rolled in over a 3-year period as outlined below.
