The Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS) course builds and expands on the concepts and themes introduced in Scoutmaster Position-Specific Training and provides Scouters with the confidence to take youth into the outdoors.

Specifically, this hands-on program gives adult leaders a practical introduction to the patrol method of a
boy-led troop by teaching many of the practical outdoor skills they need to lead Scouts in the out-of-doors.
In addition, the teaching methods, activities, and games model the variety of teaching used in effective and
engaging Scouting programs.

The skills sessions presented in Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills closely follow the Boy Scout
Handbook and are meant to serve as an adult training outline. By using these skills sessions in conjunction
with the Boy Scout Handbook, trainers can be sure new leaders are proficient in many of the basic outdoor
skills through First Class rank, and gain exposure to the patrol method and numerous teaching methods
and learning games. Each skills session references specific chapters in the handbook

Hands-on participation is the best learning tool, and this course models the techniques used by effective
Scoutmasters, Coaches, Advisors, and other leaders in the Scouting program. Attendees will see and
experience different aspects of how Scouting works while playing the role of Scouts in a troop.
Participants should leave the training experience with a full understanding of how the patrol method
operates, a feeling of comfort in working with and instructing their Scouts, and an increased level of
confidence in taking Scouts outdoors safely. With that comes great satisfaction.
