College national curriculum in support of roundtables. Please

All of the Basic Training courses have been updated by
a development team led by Dave Fornadel. The team has

can find them posted on the national Commissioners

LDS Commissioner Orientation
The LDS Commissioner Orientation Development
Team has just posted the new training module on the
national website. This orientation focuses on commissioner
service within the LDS church and is available for use by all
commissioners. The development team consisted of Larry
Gibson, First Counselor in the Young Men General Presidency;
Mark Francis, a Scouting professional and LDS liaison on
the National Alliances Team; Roma and Wayne Bishop of the
LDS church; and Steve Yackel and the development team at
The course will be offered in a manner very similar to Youth
Protection training. If you sign in and have a Scouting ID,
your training record will be updated upon completion of the
course. If you don’t sign in, you can still take the training and
print a certificate. Take the certificate to your assistant council
commissioner for training or council commissioner and they will
be able to update your record.
All 68 Commissioner College courses as well as the
supporting materials in the General folder are being updated.
This development team will make sure the course materials
contain the most current information.
We also want to provide an outstanding learning experience
for every commissioner, whether they were just commissioned
or have years of experience.
If you have feedback on how the training can be improved,
please contact Tim Acree, national commissioner service
training chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
