IOLS TrainingOutdoor 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.
