Trainer's Edge Course
The Trainer's EDGE is a required course for:
- Wood Badge for the 21st Century Staff
- National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT) Staff
- Council & District Training Staff
- Pack Trainers
- and anyone interested in polishing their training skills
The purpose of the Trainer's EDGE course is t provide and help develop the platform skills of a trainer and is meant to supplement the practice that is offered through Wood Bade and NYLT staff development. You will have the opportunity to hone your skills and give several presentations during the day to put into practice the skills taught through Trainers' EDGE.
The Trainer's EDGE uses contemporary training techniques and emphasizes the importance of experiential learning, or "learning by doing". Most of the sessions not only demonstrate good training methods, but also give participants a chance to interact and actually practice what they have learned.
