The Las Vegas Area Council provides training for all areas of program, leadership, and supervision. Regular courses are held at convenient locations in each district.
Volunteers should establish a mandate and mind-set that untrained leadership meeting with young people is unacceptable.

College of Commissioner Science
Extenstion Leadership Series
The College of Commissioner Science (CCS) is offering a series of professional educational workshops that will feature diverse hands-on techniques that will enable the participants to fully understand some “best practices” involved in adult volunteer training. The overall outcome of the series of courses is that the participants will become competent, comfortable, and equipped with the latest ‘tools” designed to heighten their knowledge base.
The following sessions are an “extension” offering of the College of Commissioner Science, and are being offered to all commissioners (Unit, District and Council) in the Las Vegas Area Council, whether they are in the bachelor, master, and doctorate programs, and also to those scout leaders not currently in the CCS programs at all. The sessions will be open to all committee members (pack, troop, varsity, or venturing).
The six 5-hours sessions will be offered monthly, on Saturday mornings at the Donald W. Reynolds Scouting Resource Center – 7220 S. Paradise Rd. Las Vegas, NV 89119. You may attend any course or all six. Check-in for the courses begin at 8:00 am with the sessions going from 8:30 am – 1:30 pm. There is no cost to attend the courses, however we ask that you pre-register on-line. click on the class to register.
