The Troop Instructor teaches Scout skills when needed (and upon request from the PLC or the Scoutmasters).
Each instructor is an older troop member proficient in a Scouting skill. He must also
have the ability to teach that skill to others. An instructor typically teaches subjects that
Scouts are eager to learn—especially those such as first aid, camping, and
backpacking—that are required for outdoor activities and rank advancement. A troop
can have more than one instructor.
