It seems to be the case that a troop Scouter must have completed SM/ASM Position Specific and IOLS before taking Wood Badge. http://www.scouting....r_Positions.pdf
This requirement is not being uniformly honored.
Are there any consequences when councils allow untrained - some totally untrained - Scouters to take Wood Badge?
Any contact info for someone at National Council who should know?
(Yes, the basic training courses are not always wonderful, but they seem hardly likely to be improved if deemphasized.)
