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 Scout-led troop by teaching many of the practical outdoor skills they need to lead Scouts in the out-of-doors.

NOTE: IOLS is required for all Scoutmasters, Assistant Scoutmasters, and Venturing Advisors to be considered BSA-trained in addition to the position-specific training for that position.
