CMT 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 2022 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 the Guide class).
