Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS) Training is critical to the success of the Scouting program. This hands-on training provides adult leaders a practical introduction to the patrol method of a boy-led troop by teaching many of the practical outdoor skills they need to plan, execute, and enjoy a successful and fun outdoor program. In addition, the teaching methods, activities, and games model the variety of teaching used in effective and engaging Scouting programs.
IOLS is required for all Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters in order to be considered trained. Completion of this course, along with Youth Protection and Scoutmaster Specific trainings, will enable direct contact leaders to be rechartered in your unit as a Scoutmaster or Assistant Scoutmaster. This training is also recommended Troop Committee members and other volunteers looking to be more involved with their troop.
