The Trainer’s EDGE is a required train-the-trainer course for Wood Badge and National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) staffs. But, it can also be very beneficial for other wishing to enhance their training and presentation skills (both in and out of Scouting). Only practice can polish these skills, but this course is intended to “train the trainer” on behaviors and resources while offering hands-on experience in methods and media.

Trainer’s EDGE is designed to help Scouters understand the EDGE (Explain, Demonstrate, Guide, Enable) training model and gain self-confidence through hands-on training experiences. Presenters of all levels and skills are welcome and expected to attend. This training does not have an expiration date; practice makes for a more knowledgeable and experienced trainer. Participants will have the opportunity to be in front of a small group, which will offer feedback that will help improve skills as a trainer. Likewise, each person will provide the gift of feedback for other presenters in a positive, helpful way. Be prepared to come present a 7-10 minute presentation on any Scouting material (including Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, Venturing, and Exploring).
