This award can be earned once as the unit leader in each Scouting Program, once as a commissioner, and once as District/Council Committee member.

9 Arrowhead Honor Award The Arrowhead Honor Award is a prerequisite for the Commissioner s Key, Distinguished Commissioner Award, and the Doctorate of Commissioner Science Award. The requirements for this award include training specific to your commissioner position, as well as completing performance criteria that are specific to your commissioner position.

10 Doctorate of Commissioner Science The purpose of this award is to recognize those active commissioners that complete a standardized program of training, that includes the preparation of a thesis or project, and the award of the Doctorate of Commissioner Science Degree from a College of Commissioner Science. There are performance, tenure, education, and training requirements that must also be satisfied.

11 Philmont Training Center Masters The purpose of this award is to offer continuing educational opportunities so that Scouters have incentives to return, over a number of years, to take advanced training at the Center, and to be able to take their knowledge back to units, districts, councils, and council clusters, as well as, area, regional, national and international venues in order to benefit Scouts and Scouters. The requirements for this award are to attend a training course at the Philmont Training Center, attend a second course or teach a course at Philmont Training Center, recruit three people to attend a training course at PTC, and teach a Scouting course in your district, council, area, region, or other Scouting venue. A device is available for completing additional recruiting and teaching requirements.

12 Wood Badge Wood Badge is an advanced training program in the skills of leadership for all adult leaders in the Boy Scouts of America. This training program is conducted in two parts. The first is an advanced outdoor training experience that is presented over two long weekends, or as a week-long course. The second part is the application phase, during which the leaders apply the skills that they learned to their specific Scouting position. This second phase is commonly referred to as working your ticket. Upon successful completion of both phases, the Scouter is recognized with Wood Badge beads, neckerchief, and woggle. Created in 1919 at Gilwell Park, Wood Badge became an integral part of the training program of the BSA in 1948.

13 Wood Badge Staff Scouters that have served as a member of a Wood Badge staff are permitted to wear three Wood Badge Beads. Those Scouters that have served as a Wood Badge Course Director are permitted to wear four Wood Badge beads.

14 Seabadge Seabadge is an advanced training experience for adult leaders in the Sea Scouting program. The purposes of the Seabadge experience are: to improve the understanding of leadership, management and motivational skills among Sea Scout adult leaders, and to provide management, leadership, and presentation skills and tools to leaders so that they may use and share them with others in their day-to-day Sea Scout activities.

15 Seabadge Underway Seabadge Underway is an advanced leadership training course for adult leaders in the Sea Scouting program that is conducted with the participants carrying out the roles of Sea Scout youth aboard a vessel that is underway. It is the mission of this course to provide basic training for adult leaders in the Sea Scouting program in order to teach and prepare members of their ship for the safe operation of a Sea Scout vessel underway in moderate conditions.

16 Powder Horn Powder Horn is a high adventure course that is designed to teach Venturing, Boy Scout, and Varsity Scout leaders how to safely conduct high adventure outdoor activities that are fun and challenging. The course is also intended to help adult leaders to use their resources to guide their units to have successful high adventure programs.
