Trainer's EDGE is the second “train the trainer” course offered by BSA and is aimed at participants who have completed Fundamentals of Training (BSA’s first introductory “train the trainer” course) or who have other experience teaching. The course teaches methods to improve and allows the participants to receive feedback while they practice the EDGE training model (Explain, Demonstrate Guide & Enable).
Trainer's EDGE brings to life the EDGE model taught in ILST, Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmaster Specific Training, National Youth Leadership Training, and Wood Badge. Participants are given opportunity to prepare and practice a training session of their choice, using materials, equipment, and/or props that they bring with them to the course.
Trainer’s EDGE is required for Wood Badge, NYLT staff and is recommended for all Scouts and Scout leaders who conduct any type of training.
Participants: Be Prepared to present a 10-minute long presentation to your team & staff on a Scouting topic of your choice (using flipchart, table-top notebook-flipchart, note cards, felt board or similar tools. Whiteboards and markers will be available). Presentations must include a visual aid. You will receive feedback on your presentation.
If you have questions about the course, please contact Robin Pope, Chair (email@example.com)
