IOLS: Introduction to Outdoor Leaders Skills
(Required for Scouts BSA Troop & Venturing Crew Leaders)
Working as patrols, this hands-on course provides adult leaders the practical outdoor skills they need to lead Scouts in the out-of-doors. Upon completion, leaders should feel comfortable teaching Scouts the basic skills required to obtain the First Class or Venturing rank. Along with Scoutmaster Specifics Training, this course is required of all direct contact leaders registered in Scouts BSA Troops and Venturing Crews in order to be considered "trained".
