Parent Training

Every year our pack strives to obtain the highest level we can in the Journey To Excellence (
formerly the Quality Unit Award) and in order to do so one of the measurements we are measured on is how many of our adult leaders and committee members are fully trained.  For the past 5 year we have successfully obtained the highest level, GOLD and this could not have been obtained without the dedication of our pack leaders and committee members.




FACT- did you know that only 28% of uniformed scout leaders and direct-contact adults are officially trained by BSA standards and are awarded the red or green "Trained" uniform patch which is proudly displayed on their left shirt sleeve?





As a 2010 pack committee decision and achievement we require that ALL of our uniformed leaders achieve this training level, plus complete additional trainings that will help with our outdoor programs.  In addition, ALL registered parent partners must complete the online "basic training".  These online courses vary in length and you can start and stop and come back later to finish.  Once you have completed the training sessions, you simply print out the certificate card and submit it to the Pack Trainer or Cubmaster.  Each year all parents are required to attend the 15 minute Youth Protection Training and refresher course.

Our goal is to be the only pack that can boast we are
100% Trained.

IF you have received your membership card or magazine subscription, your membership number can be found on the mailing label.  You then add to your number to your profile, which is Pacific Skyline Council. This allows the BSA to track how many members from each council are registered.

All registered parents must complete the following online basic courses, average course time for each is 15-20 minutes:

1. Youth Protection Training & Quiz   (effective 6/01/10 ALL registered adults must complete YPT)

2. This is Scouting

3. Scout Parent Unit Coordinator

We encourage parents to continue their training or orientation by completing any of the other "Fast Start" courses, for example if you desire to help the pack committee, there is an introduction course on that.  Want to become a den leader?  There is an intro "Fast Start" class on that too.  While none of these courses earn you the "trained" patch it signifies that you have been introduced to the programs and have some understanding of them and how the pack operates and what it takes from your leaders to provide the quality program.

Further and advanced training classes are offered through our council and you can check their training calendar by going to this website: 

Additionally, if any parents that hold valid First Aid or CPR card you should provide a copy of that card so we know how many emergency trained members we have.
