The purpose of the Trainer’s EDGE course is to provide and help develop the platform skills of a trainer.  Only practice can polish these skills, but this course focuses on training behaviors and resources while offering hands‐on experience in methods and media. 

Trainer's EDGE is recommended for all Wood Badge/NYLT staff, unit trainers, Cubmasters, Scoutmasters, Venturing Advisors, district trainers, and others interested in improving their training and presentation skills. Presenters of all levels and skills are welcome and expected to attend.  This training does not have an expiration date; practice makes for a more knowledgeable and experienced trainer.  Participants will have the opportunity to be in front of a small group, which will offer feedback that will help improve skills as a trainer. Likewise, each person will provide the gift of feedback for other presenters in a positive, helpful way. Be prepared to come present a 7-10 minute presentation on any Scouting material (including Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturing and Exploring).

  • Youth and adults will be attending and staffing this course, unless otherwise noted.
  • The course will take a full day.
  • Please wear your full field uniform for this training event.
  • Cost: $20, which includes lunch, unless otherwise indicated.
  • Register through CampMaster.

Presenting is important, but a good trainer is more than a good presenter.  A good trainer imparts knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors in a classroom.
