  • The adult training sessions, including Leadership Essentials and Beyond the Troop, for new and returning leaders are now posted on the River Valleys Web site. You can search for training by city, county, session name, etc. location details are available by clicking on the session name in the search results. Please be sure to register for all training sessions to avoid arriving at a training location and not have a trainer show up due to low registration numbers!

    Leadership Essentials was formerly Program Grade Level Training. It replaces Basic Leadership and Age Level training.

    Beyond the Troop was formerly Outdoor Training. The table below lists Beyond the Troop training sessions, brief descriptions, and their equivalencies to Outdoor Training sessions. Note that there is no direct correlation from previous training sessions to the new Beyond the Troop training sessions.
