Every Scout Deserves a Trained Leader
Training is a vital part of the Scouting Program! Whether you just joined us as a new volunteer or you’re a seasoned member, training is the most important thing that we can offer to our scouts. Every youth deserves a trained leader!
All registered leaders MUST have current Youth Protection Training (meaning within the last 2 years) in order to re-register.
New adult applicants will not be accepted without proof of Youth Protection training.
Training is broken down by whether you’re a Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity, or Venturing Leader. Minimum courses that every leader needs to take for their registered position are detailed in the matrix: http://www.scouting.org/filestore/training/pdf/Trained_Leader_Positions.pdf
Youth Protection Training is REQUIRED by Scouts, BSA for any adult wishing to participate in the Scouting program. Registrations will not be accepted or renewed without current Youth Protection Training. Training is available at the online learning center at my.scouting.org. This training is good for two years. Course codes: Y01 or Y02 (Y02 is good for ALL levels of Scouting)
In order for a Cub Scout Leader to be considered "fully trained", you need to complete the courses listed in the Trained Leader Positions document. Position-specific training has been in-person training historically but recently has been added to the online courses at my.scouting.org. Supplemental training for Cub Scout Leaders includes BALOO (Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation) which now incorporates the formerly separate Outdoor Webelos Leaders Skills (OWL).
Boy Scout Leaders are considered "fully trained" when you complete the courses listed in the Trained Leader Positions document Scoutmaster/Assitant Scoutmaster Training and Outdoor Leader Skills are only available in a classroom setting and OLS is an overnight campout. Troop Committee Challenge is available online.
In order for a Venturing Leader to be considered "fully trained" you need to complete the courses listed in the Trained Leader Positions document including Venturing Youth Protection which is course code Y02. Y01 does not count for Venturing Leaders.
For Supplemental Training, including: Safe Swim Defense, Safety Afloat, Hazardous Weather, and other training, please visit: my.scouting.org
