  1. I have a new parent in Troop 14 who would like to become a uniformed ASM. Where can he sign up for the ASM training course in the area? He just missed the Advance Camp session, and I understand LEAD is offered in January, but was hoping there was something offered sooner than that.

    Thank you,

      Jose can also give you information on training dates for Herms. Online training is available for SM and ASM basic. OLS (Outdoor Leader Skills) is a face to face training. Online training is through the site.
