Training

Trained leaders provide a quality, fun-filled program for boys and young men and young women. When leaders understand the whys and hows of Scouting, they are more effective in their roles and the youth win!

It doesn't matter if you just joined Scouting or have 20 years under your belt as a Scoutmaster -- you can learn something new. Scouting trains all of its adult leaders, as well as its youth leaders.

Training Courses

Training Courses are available online and in-person with the  exception of YPT (Youth Protection Training) which  is only  available online.

Online courses are available throught the National BSA site my.Scouting.org.  Instructions are available on this page's menu.  In-person training courses can be found on the Training Calendar and individual district calendars on this site.
