As a Venturer, I promise to do my duty to God and help strengthen America, to help others, and to seek truth, fairness, and adventure in our world.
Training is a petty officer (youth) leadership training course offered by the National Sea Scouting Committee. This is a one week, hard core leadership course that is conducted at sea. If you successfully complete the course you will be awarded the SEAL Training Award, which is a silver pin with twin dolphins, to be worn on your uniform (see above).
This course is a leadership course, not a seamanship course. It covers such topics as preparing, goal setting, organizing, supervising, commanding, communicating, training, motivating, and other skills that will help you in functioning as a leader in your Ship and in life.
To attend a SEAL class you must be a registered Sea Scout. You must have earned the Seaman Ordinary rank prior to attending SEAL training, and you must have a thorough, working knowledge of Chapter four of the Sea Scout Manual.
