Who should be trained?
If you are a leader, you should be trained. It is not difficult, and most of it is available online. You will begin with Fast Start for your program (Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, or Venturing), and then take This is Scouting. While you are online, this would be a good time to do your Youth Protection Training. Be sure to print out copies of your training certificate!
Trained vs. Trained
There are a number of online training* courses available from BSA. These courses include:
The courses available are increasing, so be sure to go to the BSA Online Learning Center* to see what is currently available.
You will need to create an account and your BSA person ID number will be needed. In addition, MyScouting is designed to work with Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 and needs an up-to-date version of Adobe Flash Player*.
PLEASE NOTE: This is not a part of the BSA Online Recharter or Advancement system or the Doubleknot system. This means that the Online Recharter, Online Advancement, or Doubleknot User ID and Password will NOT work when logging in to MyScouting. In order to access MyScouting you must create a new profile. If you have an E-Learning (the old system) profile, your records will transfer into your MyScouting profile when you enter your person ID.
If you have entered your BSA Person ID number in your profile your training records with BSA will be updated to reflect the completion of the training you take online. There will also be a certificate that you can print out for your records. If you lose this certificate you will be able to print out a duplicate.
