On-Demand Learning
First up, before you can attend your Scouting Essentials training, you will need to complete some On-Demand learning modules. some of which you would have completed as part of your Adult Membership.
You can find the On-Demand learning at 
Before you can attend Scouting Essentials you will need to complete all the On-Demand learning under: 
- Scouting Preliminary 
- Scouting Essentials 
If your login hasn't already been preset find "Adult Leader Training" and set "Youth Program Leader" as your training. Click into that curriculum to access the On-Demand modules after that. 

On-Demand Modules have been set up so that you if you are already knowledgeable in a certain topic you can complete a pre-module quiz and get recognition for already knowing the content. Making this aspect of your training super easy. 

Application to attend Training
Once you have completed the On-Demand learning you will need to apply to attend a Scouting Essentials Training Course. 
To do this you will need to submit a TR1 (Application to Attend Training).
You can download this form from the MyScout Resources tab. 
Once you have filled it in, you will need your Group Leader to sign it. it will then need to be sent to 3 weeks before your selected course. 
If everything has been completed you will get a confirmation that you have been successful in getting onto the course. closer to the course you will get an email with all the course information. 

The Course
You are ready to attend Scouting Essentials. Go along and take in as much as you can. It is a great way to meet new people, network within scouting and find out more about what other groups are up to in WA. An emailed letter will be sent out the week prior that will explain everything you need to bring with you for the course. In the meantime ensure that your details (dietary, medical and contact) are up-to-date on MyScout 

After the course is completed you are now able to undertake your Scouting Adventures On-Demand learning and course.
