Introduction

 'Scouting Fundamentals' is the name for the mandatory initial training as set out in the Volunteer Screening policy. All new Scouters must take this training as part of their screening before they can be made 'Active'.

 

What is included in Scouting Fundamentals training?

'Scouting Fundamentals' is made up of seven sessions which includes Respect in Sport for Activity Leaders and Accessibility training. This means that completion of 'Scouting Fundamentals' also results in completion of Accessibility training, and Respect in Sport for Activity Leaders

 

How do I take this training?

Simply launch 'my learning path' and follow the prompts in the learning path. 'Scouting Fundamentals' is a section of the island that you will be directed to complete upon opening the learning path.

 

Do I need to complete Scouting Fundamentals before completing Wood Badge 1 for The Canadian Path? 

Yes. It is intended that all new volunteers complete Scouting Fundamentals before Wood Badge 1 for The Canadian Path. 'My learning path' directs you to complete this training sequentially.

 

However, it is important to note that on a system basis, it is possible to complete Wood Badge 1 for The Canadian Path before completing Scouting Fundamentals training. 

  

My profile shows 'WB1' required, what does this mean?

Completion of Scouting Fundamentals will clear the 'WB1' requirement in myscouts.

    Is AODA and Accesibility training located as a separate module but required to complete Scouting Fundamentals? Can it be reflected in this article? i.e. session 7 or 8?
