Fast Start Training is the first step for all new leaders and should be taken immediately after they register and before meeting with any youth members. New leaders choose the Fast Start they need to take: Cub Scout Leader, Boy Scout Leader, Varsity Scout Leader, or Venturing Crew Leader. All Fast Start courses are available on DVD, or they can be completed online at MyScouting. While not required for a leader to earn their "Trained" status, Fast Start Training is an essential first course for new leaders looking to get up to speed on their new position right away.
