The Trainer's EDGE®, replaces the Trainer Development Conference (BSA 500) as the required train-the-trainer course for Wood Badge and NYLT staffs. Only practice can polish skills, and this course is intended to “train the trainer” on behaviors and resources while offering hands-on experience in methods and media.
Pre-course Preparation: You must prepare a 10-12 minute presentation on a topic from any BSA material. Your presentation should allow you to demonstrate the skills of a trainer. You will receive constructive feedback on your presentation from the other participants.
