Developed for Venturing Advisors, Associate Advisors, and Crew Committee Members, this training incorporates Venturing’s current adult leader training.

This is an “in-person” instructor-led course.  The training is now also available online at https://my.scouting.org/. Classroom training allows a more personal interaction and opportunities to ask questions.
