Youth Protection Training – Required Every Two Years

For All Adults

Youth Protection Training is designed to help you keep our youth safe from abuse. You will learn the Boy Scouts of America’s Youth Protection Guidelines, signs of abuse, and how to report suspected abuse. After each section of material, you will answer questions about that section’s topic. This course must be completed to earn the “Trained” emblem. Completion is noted automatically in the BSA training records database for registered adults if the module is experienced online. Estimated time to complete: 40 minutes.
