Trained Scout Leader Qualifying Scouting is not hard, but adult leaders need to understand principles of Scouting and have the knowledge and skills to deliver the age appropriate Cub Scout, Boy Scout or Venturing program. Much of the training is available online through My.scouting.org allowing everyone the flexibility needed in fit training in their schedule. All Registered Leaders should check on the training needed to be considered trained for your volunteer position. Click here for position qualifying training. Check MyScouting.org for your training record. Once logged in, on the left hand side there is a column. Under training, there is a link to the Training Validation System. Click the link and enter your scouting ID number to view all training recorded for you.
If there training is needed for your position that you have not taken, check the on-line training available through My.Scouting.org and completing the training. Some advanced courses require hands on or instructor lead training. For those check the PTAC Calendar for when the course is available.
If you have taken needed training but it is not in your record visit http://tinyurl.com/NWSCtraining to request your training record be updated. Support the Scouting movement by being trained in the Scouting methods and principles as well as having the knowledge and skills to deliver a quality program to your unit youth. It is important to them. Watch for letters that will be sent to all registered leaders who do not have the appropriate training recorded for their position. If you receive a letter or card please respond to assure your training is current and recorded correctly. What more information on Scout leader training visit the PTAC Training page.
