Orientation Training:
Orientation training introduces new leaders to BSA. These courses are some of the first trainings a new leader should take upon accepting a leadership position with a pack, troop, or crew; several sessions deliver usable ideas for a first meeting.

Leader Specific:
Leader Specific training corresponds to the position a leader holds within a unit, and is required for a leader to be considered trained and wear the "Trained" patch on a uniform shirt.Note that This is Scouting need only be taken once. As a leader changes positions, additional Leader Specific courses may be required to maintain trained status.

Activity Specific Training:
This category includes trainings that are required for specific Scouting activities and events. Course details indicate for which leadership positions and what activities the training is necessary.

Supplemental Training:
This category encompasses trainings that are designed to supplement basic training and give leaders additional ideas and skills to use in home units. These courses are sometimes council-wide courses, and provide a variety of diverse, advanced opportunities for leaders.
