Skills & Permit Training
Dorset Scouts Assistant County Commissioners can advise and help with queries:
- Land Andy Young firstname.lastname@example.org
- Water (Joint) Mark Wildman email@example.com
- Water (Joint) Paul Rayner firstname.lastname@example.org
Air activities do not have any Scouting permits as only external qualifications are acceptable to run air adventurous actitivities. Therefore, there is no ACC but there is an Air Adviser:
- Air Chris Chappell email@example.com
Training and Permit Assessment
The standard training scheme for leaders is to deliver day-to-day scouting activities and ends in the Woodbadge award. Leaders can extend their skills by doing specialist training, often specialising in one of adventurous activities categories of land, sea or air. An assessment can lead to a permit allowing them to run a particular adventurous activity.
Other roles can also become adventurous activity permitted holders. An existing SAS member may do so. Or an adult may volunteer to be a Skills Instructor only and they do the mandatory Getting Started training then the specialist skills training.
