Unit Sign-up Instructions

Last update to this section:  December 3, 2006.


Unless indicated otherwise, all requirements for the Adult Leader Training should be covered in class. 


REGISTERING ADULTS ON-LINE


Please note that all participants are registered by troop.  One leader from each pack, troop, or crew may register all adult volunteers.  If this is not possible, adults may register separately. The process is very similar to going to summer camp.  


1.  Before you register, you need to do a few things first.


     a.  If you register for your self, it is required that you check the box


     marked “Unit Leader” on the “User Profile” information page. You get


     there by pressing the “My Profile” button on the main page.


    


     b.  Next, to help you in the registration process, it is advisable that


     you print out a hard copy of the classes offered on the first page of


     the web site and a hard copy of these registration directions before


     you proceed.


 


     c.  Now press the “Unit Sign Up” button at the top of the first page


     of event.


 


     d.  You are now on the “Scout Registration” page.


          1.  Press the drop down menu arrow for all upcoming events to


          locate the “University of Scouting: Adult Leader Training;


          Tuscaloosa, AL” Click on it.


 


          2.  Go to the bottom of the same page and locate your name in


          the “Unit Leader Roster.”  It should have a “No” next to your


          name under “Attending Event.”  Press the blue “Toggle” button


          to change “No” to “Yes.” Now you may register for classes.


 


          3.  Now enter your first name, last name, phone number, and


          e-mail. For age, please, enter 20 from the drop down menu.  Of


          note this online system is adapted from a Merit Badge system


          for Boy Scouts and Venture Crews.


 


          4.  To register for your first class you must first select a


          “Session” time from the drop down menu to find out what


          classes are offered at that time.  You then select one from all of


          the classes offered at that time.  The logic is like channel surfing


          TV to find out what is offered at a particular time. This is where


          the class list you printed out a few moments ago comes in


          handy.  You then press the “Add” button and you are now


          registered for that one class. If you registered for the wrong


          class or change you mind later, just hit the delete button next to
          the class by your name.


           


          5.  To register for a second class you go to a different time and


          select from that list of classes. Please, make sure that if you


          select a two hour class, you skip an hour before you select


          another class.  For example, if you select a 2 hour class


          beginning at 0900, you should not sign up for another class until


          1100.


 


2.  Now you are ready to pay. Please, see the section below on Payment Instructions.


 


     a.  If you are experiencing any technical problems, please, contact


     William Aldridge or David Wilson by using the above contact


     information.  Once you have learned the process, please, help others.


ERROR MESSAGES AND TECHNICAL SUPPORT


1.  If you ever encounter an error message, just hit the back arrow on your web browser and press the "update" button again.  If it fails after two attempts, please e-mail William Aldridge or David Wilson. Also, please include your day and night phone.


2.  I have noticed that it takes two attempts to enter the Council name and District name.  When you enter the Council name and District name, please check the drop-down menu first.  For members of the Black Warrior Council, please use the drop-down menu.  Please register by January 18, 2007.


Please note that instructors request e-mail or telephone numbers for coordination.
