Because they differ from year to year and week to week, we no longer have distinct codes for PTC conferences. There is now just one code for attending a PTC conference (H101). We also do not have training codes for local council content courses such as commissioner conferences, universities of Scouting, and pow wows. To be in the ScoutNET database of training codes, the rule of thumb is that the content should be identical from course to course and council to council.

Note that a listing of all current training codes can be accessed from the Adult training page. Under QuickLinks at the right side of the page, click on Training Course Codes (Alpha).

Who is considered a trained commissioner?

A trained commissioner is one who has completed orientation and basic training. A commission will be presented to a new commissioner after he or she has received proper orientation and has completed Commissioner Basic Training. The proper orientation varies by the role, but a commissioner who has received a commission is considered trained. There are no “triggers” in ScoutNET that define a trained commissioner.

Once commissioned, are we done with training?

Actually we have only begun! We know in our role as a commissioner our training never ends. As stated in the Administration of Commissioner Service manual, “As commissioners, we must continually adjust our skills to provide a more valuable service to our units. Commissioners should therefore view learning as an important part of their entire Scouting lives. For all commissioners, training is a continuing process—every month, every year.”
