On December 5, 2009 the national council introduced the new official "Sea Scout Adult Leader Basic Training" (SSALBT) training program.  It is designed to replace all previous versions of Sea Scout adult leader training. This new two and a half hour program gets back to basics and covers important key subjects including program unit resource management, training opportunities, youth advancement and recognition, program planning, effective leadership, and more.


"We're excited to roll this program out for the benefit of all Sea Scout adult volunteers" says Keith Christopher, National Director, Sea Scouts, BSA. "We feel this program will help strengthen and grow our valuable Sea Scout programs with more youth involvement and more ships operating a great program."
SSALBT is the first step in training for all Sea Scout leaders focusing on the skills and attributes necessary to be an effective adviser in the Ship's deliverance of service to youth in your specific geographic location. It is intended primarily to enhance individual knowledge of and connectivity with the strategic plan, program and resources, while emphasizing personal skills necessary for the development of youth in the Sea Scout program.
This program replaces all previous basic training programs for Sea Scout adult leaders effective immediately and will be presented by qualified national, regional, area, and council trainers.  Presenters of any previous versions of the training program should now use this new program. If you would like to host a SSALBT training program in your council, please contact your local council, area or flotilla or regional commodores, or the national council for more information.
