Great News!  Training Has Been Made Easier to Attain

My.Scouting.org E-Learning has added Scoutmaster Specific and Merit Badge Counselor Training as well as updating Troop Committee Challenge. Online training modules take approx. the same amount of time to complete as attending a classroom training session.

Please take advantage of these trainings to provide the best experience for the youth we serve. Merit Badge Counselor Training will now be required before anyone is approved to serve in that position.


Online Youth Protection Training Info.

To provide the safest possible environment for Scouts and Scouting volunteers, the Boy Scouts of America requires Youth Protection Training for all adults registered with the Boy Scouts of America.  Youth Protection Training needs to be renewed every two years. It is easy to access and complete
