Commissioners

General Information

What does a Commissioner do?
As a unit commissioner, you are one of the most important influences to ensure quality Scouting. With your help, the units you serve will be prepared to provide an even better program to the boys and young adults they serve. Because of you, boys and young adults will stay in the Scouting program longer!

Commissioner Training
Unit Commissioner Fast Start online training is an orientation designed for all commissioners to learn about the job responsibilities for a unit commissioner. You can complete this training using the MyScouting Online Training Portal. This ‘fast start’ training is designed to be taken by all commissioner within the first few weeks of agreeing to be a commissioner. This is only the introduction of your new position in Scouting – see below for additional training required for commissioners.

In addition to Fast Start training, Commissioner Basic Training is required for all Unit Commissioners, Assistant District Commissioners, and District Commissioners. For more information on Commissioner Basic Training see the Scout Leader Training overview page.

All registered leaders, including commissioners, are required to take Youth Protection Training every two years, and are encouraged to take more advanced training such as College of Commissioner Science and Wood Badge. Please see the Scout Leader Training overview page for more information.
