Training: IOLS & OWLS

IOLS: Introduction to Outdoor Leaders Skills

(Required for Boy Scout & Venture 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 rank. Along with Scoutmaster Specifics this course is required of all direct contact leaders registered in Boy Scout Troops and Venture Crews in order to be considered "trained".

OWLS: Outdoor Webelos Leader Skills

(Supplemental Training for Webelos Leaders)

This course is designed to help Webelos leaders enhance the outdoor program for the Webelos Scouts in their den by teaching some basic outdoor skills as well as skills needed to complete many of the Webelos activity badges. This course can be taught as a stand-alone experience but is often presented in conjunction with Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS).

Do I need IOLS or OWLS Training?  

IOLS is REQUIRED TRAINING for all Scoutmasters & Venture Crew Leaders

OWLS is supplemental training for Webelos Leaders.

Due to recent changes however the OWLS Training is very similar to the IOLS Training. By completeing this training you will receive credit for both!
