Instructor Training

Royal Rangers instructors play a central role in the success of the program by providing valuable training on both the national and district levels to equip leaders for success in their various areas of responsibility. Instructors attain certification to teach district-level training programs through the Royal Rangers Training Academy. Certification to teach national-level training program is attained through National Academy.

Training Academy

Training Academy (TA) represents the process by which individuals attain certification to teach district-level training programs. Training Academies are conducted under the direction of a regional training coordinator in cooperation with the district training coordinators in that area. Basic qualifications to attend a Training Academy include:

  • Complete the Advanced level of the Outpost Leader Advancement Level (OLAL)
  • Read the Royal Rangers Leader Manual
  • Observe and/or assist at three separate training events (RB/RE or an RMA continuous learning elective)
  • Be recommended by district/network director
  • Score 95% or higher on the Training Academy open resource test (which must be accomplished prior to receiving TA teaching assignment)

Individuals meeting the above requirements may be invited to submit an application to TA by their district director and Regional Training Coordinator (RTC). Attendance at TA does not guarantee certification.
