The course content and leadership principles introduced apply to Scouters of all leadership positions and will provide a common foundation of leadership skills to be used throughout all program areas. 


Each Scouter invited to participate in Wood Badge training must be a registered member of the Boy Scouts of America and have completed the basic training courses for their current Scouting position.  They must be physically cleared by a physician and present a completed BSA medical form.
