New Leader Training is comprised of Fast Start Training, Basic Leader Training, and Leader Specific Training.

The New Leader Training helps leaders easily graduate through the courses quickly and with little duplication.

Fast Start Training is the first step for all new volunteer as soon as they register and before he or she meets with any youth member. Fast Start Training is tailored to the leader's position:

Cubmaster/Assistant Tiger Cub Den Leader Webelos Den Leader Wolf/Bear Den Leader
Pack Committee Boy Scout Leader Venturing Leader Unit Commissioner

Training continues through the two parts of Basic Leader Training. The first part of Basic Leader Training is the general New Leader Essentials which highlights the values, aims, history, funding, and methods of Scouting. The second part is Leader Specific Training which provides more specialized information about the leade's particular position and an introduction to outdoor leader skills and Wood Badge.

All leaders should also complete Youth Protection Training.
