Training

Before you start saving the world, there are a few things you should know.  Explore the learning and enrichment opportunities below to keep the good times rolling!

Training courses follow a consistent and established pattern at all of our Service Centers – there is rarely a weekend that we are not training somewhere. We rotate centers around the council every Saturday, have evening classes on Wednesdays, and occasional Thursday morning for stay at home parents, too!
