Fall Product Courses

Service Unit Fall Product Program Manager Training - This learning session helps to prepare service unit product sales managers, service unit administrators, and area product sales managers for the upcoming Girl Scout Fall Product Program. Training includes product information, required paperwork, and yes, product tasting. 

Fall Product Troop Training (both Webinar and Classroom options available) Recommended for new troop leaders interested in participating in the Council-sponsored fall product sale  - This year’s fall training is being offered to you in two ways. The webinar format allows you to access the information from a computer or mobile device that is intended to accommodate your schedule. We still will provide in person classroom-led trainings, if you prefer more interaction. Trainings cover how the sale works, product information, required paperwork, incentives, and more. This training is an alternative for troops that cannot attend their local service unit training.
