There are two required training classes for new Assistant Scoutmasters, IOLS and SMASM. Brief descriptions are below.
Outdoor skills are critical to the success of the Scouting program, and Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills will provide the expertise needed to plan, execute, and enjoy a successful and fun outdoor program. This hands-on course provides adult leaders the practical outdoor skills they need to lead Scouts in the outdoors. Upon completion, leaders should feel comfortable teaching Scouts the basic skills required to obtain the First Class rank.
Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills is required for all Scoutmasters, Assistant Scoutmasters, and Varsity Scout Coaches 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 for second year Webelos leaders and Troop Committee members too.
Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills Training (IOLS) is conducted in two parts. Both parts MUST be attended to complete the course. Registration is required and there will be a fee.

IOLS PART 2
Date: Friday March 17 to Saturday, March 18 2017. This is an OVERNIGHT event.

Location: Hans Jensen Park

A must for all new Scoutmasters & Assistant Scoutmasters, and those experienced unit leaders that have not received any training in the past 3 years. And, for 2nd year Webelos Leaders who are planning to bridge-over into Boy Scouting in the next 3 - 6 months. It is highly recommended for all new and experienced Troop Committee Members who wish to gain a better understanding about the roles and responsibilities of their adult unit leaders. We also encourage this training for all parents who wish to gain a better understanding of how a "boy run" unit operates. Scoutmasters and Assistant Scoutmasters who complete this training as well as IOLS and Youth Protection trainings are considered "trained."
Date and location for Alpine District SMASM training will be posted. You may also complete SMASM in any other District. See the Training calendar for available SMASM dates.
