Den and Assistant Den Leader Training
Den Leaders and Assistant Den Leaders must take the course called “Den Leader Position-Specific Training.” This course is much more extensive than Youth Protection Training and can take several hours to complete online. Alternatively, as with Youth Protection Training, there are live, in-person training options that are generally considered more efficient and beneficial, taking approximately 2 hours to complete. Contact the pack trainer for more information on possible live course offerings.
Note: If completing both this course and “Pack Committee Position-Specific Training,” there is significant overlap in a number of the modules that will not need to be duplicated, thus saving significant time if completing both courses.
