Updated 1-10-2013


Royal Rangers instructors form the critical link between local leaders and the various aspects of the program. Instructors provide valuable training to equip leaders for success in their various areas of responsibility. The current instructor certification process requires completing the Training Academy (TA), the TA is coordinated and overseen by the Regional Training Coordinator in cooperation with the local district training coordinators.

Certification will be provided through the region in cooperation with the local district. The Training Academy will prepare graduates to teach in the Rangers Ministry Academy and will be the prerequisite for attending all other academies.
