Get Training

Every Scout deserves a trained leader. Often we joined scouts as adults to help out. The best way to do that is to become a trained leader. We also have to consider that we as adults would need to train the youth to take on responsibilities of leadership. Here are three videos to get you going. The first is about your training as an adult leader.

Scouting Knowledge 🎁 The REAL Gift for Americas Youth

During this vacation time, it would be ideal to check into your scout leader training. Records of your training are attached to your Scouts BSA ID number. Check your training records in your My.Scouting.org account. If no training is reporting to your account this may be to your personal settings or a duplicate ID number. This can happen if you register with multiple units. If everything matches your ID number and you still see no records, you should call the council office for help. During this Holiday season, it would be a good time to update YPT. This training is good for 2 years but you can update it anytime. Online Training (ScoutingU) should keep records attached to your Scouts BSA ID number. Live/Classroom training should be reported and added to your online profile/account by council advancement. Remember to keep your records in case it gets lost by the instructor or eaten by the family pet. University of Scouting or Pow-Wow is a good place to get non-traditional scout leader training. This type of training is normally not tracked online.
