The aim of the course was to increase the overall experience and number of trainers in SIM, as well as to provide training support in the establishment of new teams of commissioners in the association. Specific training objectives were:
To choose and use basic presentation techniques

To understand and use the above in a Scouting context
Some of the modules that were covered during the training included: the purpose of training system (framework), training experience (“learning by doing”), a catalogue of methods, discussing training practices, project planning, learning goals, training values, etc. The training provided not only knowledge and skills, but also a great impulse and enthusiasm to the participants who made concrete plans for their work in the future.
