Training is the single most important thing a leader can do! Training courses are developed to provide all levels of knowledge for unit operations. This ranges from the brand new leader to the Scoutmaster with 20 years of experience. By learning the best practices of your position, you will become a better leader. Eric Smith is the Timberline District Training Chairman. If you would like to learn more about training opportunities or to help out on the district training team please contact Eric.
