This Award is meant for Boy Scouts.
Scouts and adults may earn the Trained Strip by completing required training for their position.
The strip is worn centered directly below and touching the emblem of leadership for which it was earned on the left sleeve of the uniform.
Youth in leadership positions earn the Trained Strip by attending the three modules included in the Troop Leadership Training course.
The modules are basically:
- What a leader must know
- What a leader must be
- What a leader mus do
When a scout leaves the specific position for which he attended training, he should remove the Trained Strip. When he assumes a new leadership role and attends training for that role, he can again where the patch.
The following lists the minimum training required for adults to earn the Trained Strip. There are other valuable training programs, such as Wood Badge, available to adults so please take advantage of them to improve the program you offer the scouts:
- Cubmasters, Den Leaders, Pack Committee members attend Fast Start Orientation, New Leader Essentials and Cub Scout Leader Specific Training course.
