Basic Staff Training (BST)

It is mandatory that all Pathfinder and Adventurer staff attend Basic Staff training. It is recommended that all staff attend every 3 years as a refresher especially where they have not been continually active in the ministry.

The BST Course is designed to develop awareness in leaders of the basic fundamentals of the Pathfinder/Adventurer Club and help teachers become familiar with the procedures, policies and resources necessary to commence and maintain a Pathfinder club. It will teach those basic elements of information required for any Pathfinder/Adventurer staff member or leader to adequately fulfil his or her duties.

Participants will attend a minimum of 10 hours of seminar training conducted by the SEC. Which is currently run accross 2 Sundays, (dates for 2019 are below). In addition to this the participants are expected to complete the SEC KCFS (Keeping the Church Family Safe) Training (with the exception of Guide class).
