First Class Emphasis Program (FCE)

The First Class Emphasis program is for first-year Scouts that focuses on teaching the Scouts the skills necessary to complete many of the Tenderfoot, Second Class or First Class skills. The class will work as a patrol and have the opportunity to learn most of the requirements for Tenderfoot, Second Class and First Class. The FCE instructors will not sign off on any skills. The list of skills the Scouts worked on during the First Class Emphasis program will be available in the online registration system. The Scout will then need to demonstrate the skills learned to their Scout leader. After demonstrating proficiency in each skill the Scoutmaster or designee will then sign off the requirements in the Scout Handbook and Scoutbook.
