Every time you take Scouting training, you should get a signed card showing the class has been completed. You even get cards from on-line training. I have talked to leaders in our unit that have no idea where their cards are. This is unfortunate because sometimes this is the only record that you took that training (yes I know there is a roster filled out, and the training is reported to the local council, but in reality those cards are sometimes all there is).
It’s so important to keep your training cards together, some place that’s protected and easy to remember. And you should turn in a copy of your training records to your unit – preferably your pack trainer. As pack trainer for our Cub Scout pack, one of my duties is to record and summarize all training records for our leaders. The cards are the only way I can do this. So keep getting trained, and keep a record of your training by keeping your cards. It’s one of the little things we do that adds to the overall quality of our unit.
