The Northern Branch Office Scout Training Team began as a unit training program for Boy Scout Troop 777 in The Woodlands, Texas. Since our beginnings in 1990, the team has now trained over 30,000 WEBELOS, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and their adult leaders. Many boys, girls and adults have been called upon to use the skills they learned in our programs to help others and over a dozen have now been recognized by both The American Red Cross and the BSA for extraordinary acts of heroism.
The NBO Scout Training Team supports the BSA/ARC national training agreement. We have assisted other dedicated volunteers across the country in establishing American Red Cross based training programs for Scouts. We offer instructor level training for all our program areas too.
We charter BSA Venturing Crew-911. Crew-911 offers area teens, fourteen and older and young adults the opportunity to learn and practice advanced first aid, lifesaving, and rescue skills… Our youth members operate the largest BAT Basic Aid Training program for WEBELOS in the country. Crew-911 has quite a reputation in our District and Council… for providing a unique service to Scouting, to our Community and having fun doing it!
Come and train with us! We offer a full range of American Red Cross programs from our BAT Basic Aid Training program for Cub Scouts earning the WEBELOS Readyman activity pin through our First Responder Lifeguarding program for mature Venture age teens. Our Deer Lake Canoe Clinic provides Sam Houston Area Council approved canoe and kayak training for Scouts and Scouters. We offer Wilderness Remote First Aid training too.
Crew-911, The BSA and The American Red Cross… Together, we DO save lives!
Note: The current Wilderness course that the BSA accepts is Wilderness and Remote First Aid. This class has "current Adult CPR/AED certification from a nationally recognized training organization" as a prerequisite. The new class also has a hard minimum age requirement of "14 by the last scheduled class session" or currently registered in a Crew or Ship.
