Commissioner

Training

A trained commissioner is an effective commissioner.

Just as we require our unit leaders to be trained, we require our commissioner staff to be trained for their position.

Basic training courses are available for unit commissioners, new-unit commissioners, roundtable commissioners, district/assistant district commissioners, and council commissioners. There are various levels of commissioner training.


Commissioners’ Basic

Basic training for Commissioners present the job specific material necessary to understand and perform the commissioner’s duties. This training, along with Youth Protection Training, is required for all commissioners to be considered fully trained.

Basic training has been changed from one course for all commissioners to position-specific courses for unit commissioners, new-unit commissioners, district and assistant district commissioners, and roundtable commissioners. Each course is about three hours in length and should be conducted by an instructor.
