All Commissioners should attend this nationally recognized program. There are Bachelor's, and Master's Degrees that can be earned. All can benefit from courses offered by the continuing education college.

Why do Commissioners Need the College?

The mission of the commissioner is to help the unit succeed and the way to accomplish this mission is through education and practical learning experiences. Just as every Scout deserves a trained leader, every unit deserves a trained commissioner!

A trained commissioner is an effective commissioner. Training materials are being updated on a routine basis. Therefore, to stay up to date, commissioners should view learning as an important part of their entire scouting lives.

Even though updated training materials are available on the BSA Commissioner Training web page, holding a college gives commissioners the opportunity for interaction with other commissioners, and a better understanding of the material during a group discussion.

The college provides an in-depth knowledge of the essential aspects of the commissioner’s duties and responsibilities. The final result is a stronger and more knowledgeable commissioner corps serving units.

The College offers the opportunity to:

  • Learn the information essentials to provide the best service to scouting units
  • Provide fellowship amongst the commissioner corps
  • Reinforce and expand on the lessons learned during previous training
  • Provide updates on commissioner service and scouting
