Training and Courses

Every Scout deserves a trained leader. It's important that we keep our leaders trained and current on the latest policy changes to keep our Scouts safe. There are a few different trainings that are available to us as parents, leaders and mentors.

Online Training
The myscouting.org website is the portal to complete Youth Protection, Leader Specific Training and skills training. Some examples of Leader Specific training are: Den Leader Training, Pack Committee Training, Cubmaster Training, and Committee Chair Training. In this area we can also find skills training for example: Safe Swim Defense, Safety Afloat and several others.
