Trainer’s EDGE Training

March 25

8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

at JVC Service Center

Cost $5.00

The Trainer’s Edge Course is for any trainer desiring to improve their skills. The course replaces the Trainer Development Conference as the required train-the-trainer course for Wood Badge and NYLT staffs.

The purpose of the Trainer’s Edge Course is to provide and help develop the platform skills of a trainer. It is meant to supplement the practice offered through Wood Badge and NYLT staff development, with a focus on the participant, while raising the level of skill a trainer brings to the staff experience.

Participants are required to do an oral presentation on a topic of their choice within BSA. It can be Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Explorers, Venturing, Leave No Trace, etc. Bring whatever books or materials you used to research the topic.

Call the JVC Office (717) 667-9236 or email to register.

A light lunch and water will be provided.
