Scoutmaster Position-Specific training is the BSA’s initial level of training for the top leaders of Boy Scout troops. It is designed for Scoutmasters, Assistant Scoutmasters, and Junior Assistant Scoutmasters. However, committee members and other adults connected to a Boy Scout troop are welcome to attend.
By completing Scoutmaster Position-Specific training and Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS), new Scoutmasters will have the tools needed to begin an effective Boy Scouting program.
