Basic Staff Training (BST): This track (of 8 classes) should be taken by any new adult staff or any new TLTs. This should be the first set of classes anyone takes.  It gives them an overview of the total Pathfinder program and is the 1st step in working toward their Master Guide certification.

Secretary/Treasurer Certification: This track (of 7 classes) can be taken by anyone who needs to understand the roles of the Secretary and Treasurer.  This can be any staff member, the Director, or even more advanced TLTs if they would like this knowledge.  This track is not a part of the Master Guide Certification.

Director Certification: This track (of 8 classes) can be taken by anyone needing to understand the Director position, newer Directors, Deputy Directors, other staff including more advanced TLTs.  This track is not a part of the Master Guide Certification.

Master Guide Certification:  This track (of 10 classes) is a required part of the Master Guide Certification (in addition to the Basic Staff Training), and can be taken by any staff or TLTs that have already completed the Basic Staff Training (exceptions can be made to that rule).

At each of these class tracks, you will be given a sign-off sheet that helps you keep track of the classes as you complete them.  It is your responsibility to keep track of this sign-off sheet, as the Conference does not keep track of the classes you have taken.  This sign-off sheet is your only proof that you have taken these classes, and will go in your class portfolio, which will need to be reviewed before you can consider this track completed.
