This module is for all volunteers completing a Wood Badge, and it should be completed within the first three years of volunteering.

If you are not sure if you need to do this module, check POR Chapter 16: Roles Table.

You can also ask your volunteer line manager or a Training Adviser, or contact the Info Centre.

You can access our e-learning courses on desktops, mobiles and tablets. It also works well on all browsers, such as Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome and Edge.

On mobile and tablet, some of the boxes don’t show all of the words. Turning to landscape from portrait helps with this.

Please don't hit refresh on your browser (particularly if you get a question wrong on the assessment) as this will prevent you from being able to generate the certificate at the end.

You will be able to re-take the assessment at the end.

Don’t forget to download or take a screenshot of your certificate. It will be lost if you refresh or close the webpage.

To report any technical errors please contact the Info Centre.

The accessibility tools guide provides some hints and tips on how to build accessibility features into your device.

If e-learning doesn't suit your needs, talk to your line manager or a Training Adviser. They can provide one-to-one support or help you find a face-to-face course.

Training courses are organised locally. Most Districts, Counties and Areas offer course dates on their own websites.

A Training Adviser will be able to answer any questions you have. Don’t worry if you haven’t been assigned one yet, you can speak to your volunteer line manager, local Training Manager or County Training Manager.

If you're not sure who to speak to locally, you can contact the Info Centre.
