While it hasn’t been officially announced on bsajamboree.org yet, the 2010 National Jamboree Staff Training is now available in MyScouting. The training which is consistent with other BSA online trainings consists of a video, flash based presentation, checks on learning, and additional information that can be downloaded.
The training starts out with an introduction video from Terry Dunn, the 2010 National Jamboree Chairman, which stresses the importance in preparing for the Jamboree experience. The training then breaks down in the following sections: Prior to arriving to the Jamboree, Jamboree information, Jamboree Experience, your departure, and a conclusion. At the end of the training course you will be given a link to download a reference information sheet with additional resources to prepare for the Jamboree, and a link to the Jamboree Staff Guide.
The main goal of the training was to answer questions Jamboree Staff members have and make sure everyone is on the same page. As long as you’ve read the staff guide, and paid attention to everything you’ve received so far, there should be no surprises in this training.

“This is Scouting” has been added to the BSA’s on-line Learning Center. “This is Scouting” replaces New Leader Essentials as a required course for Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, and Venturing volunteers to earn the “Trained” leader emblem.
New Leader Essentials will no longer be taught after April 1, 2009.
While the primary delivery method for “This is Scouting” is on-line, a DVD . No. 36118, will be available after April 1, from BSA Supply Division for areas where internet access is limited or where group presentation is desired.
All Scouters are encouraged to create a MyScouting account and access this training through the MyScouting portal, as credit for this training will be recorded on their ScoutNET record upon completion.
Update: When the announcement was originally made on Scouting.org it stated that New Leaders Essential would no longer be taught after April 1st. This reference has been removed from the majority of Council announcements. Please check with your local Council to determine if New Leader Essentials is still being taught.
