Hi Y’all (and especially SUAC moderators),
I don’t know where to create this thread; there isn’t a category to discuss categories.
I think we need another category for folks to post training opportunities. It is tedious to visit council websites, trying to find training that matches my schedule. During Covid, training has been mostly virtual, but there is also value for in person training for folks willing to travel. I suggest the following:
New category = Training
Sub-categories of: (last 3 don’t allow posting)
- University of Scouting
- Powder Horn
- Kodiak Challenge
- BSA Conference Centers - see National Training Conferences
- Pow Wow - post under Cub Scout Program
- College of Commissioner Science - post under BSA Commissioners and see colleges
Most councils want their own scouters to take the training they offer.
With virtual courses, councils sometimes open up to out-of-council registrations only a few days before the registration deadline. Having a worldwide audience for that short time would allow the council to fill empty slots that would otherwise go unused.
Making an individual thread for all training opportunities does not work, as the thread would close if there is a gap of 7 days between postings.
