You signed up to be a leader.....Thank you! Now what?
Group Commissioner Course
If you are a Group Commissioner, there is a course to help you in your role. The course is comprised of 4 modules but are distinctly different from a section Wood Badge Part I. The 4 modules are:
- Module 1 – Group Management Fundamentals
- Module 2 – New Scouter Recruitment and Development
- Module 3 – Group Management
- Module 4 – Program Delivery from a Group Manager Perspective
If you do not have a Wood Badge I that was received in the last three years, Module 1 – Fundamentals (from the section) is a prerequisite for this course. Module 1-Fundamentals can be taken online or offered separately at the area level.
You may complete the modules in the Wood Badge Part I online. You can complete all 5 modules through e-learning at the Scouts Canada National website http://www.scouts.ca/elearn/ You will need to register with a log-in and password in order to commence.

Wood Badge Part I Courses
Wood Badge Part I
When you sign up to be a leader or a Group Committee Member, you agree to take Wood Badge Part I training to help you learn what it is to be a leader and to be involved in the best Youth Movement there is.
Wood Badge Part I is comprised of five modules as follows:
Module 1 - Fundamentals(Core)
Module 2 - Program Support (Section Specific)
Module 3 - Planning (Section Specific)
Module 4 - Running an Effective Meeting (Section Specific)
Module 5 - Putting the "OUT" in Scouting (Section Specific)
Each module is approximately 3 hours in length. Once Module 1 is completed, then the modules can be taken in any order; at any time. Once all five modules are completed, then the woggle recognition will be awarded.
If you have completed a Wood Badge Part I within the last three years, and are changing sections, you may only need to complete the Section Specific Modules (Modules 2-5). Verify this with the DAC - Development & Training in your Area.
