Every Scouting Youth deserves a TRAINED LEADER!
All Registered Scouters must take Youth Protection Training (Y01), and it must be valid through the entire charter year – annual certification. Many parents also benefit from this training.
In addition to the annual YPT, all Scouting positions have required training. See Scouting.org for a complete list of position trained requirements. Unit Committee Members/Chairs, Chartered Organization Representatives, and Merit Badge Counselors can complete all required training online. Many of these may also be offered in a classroom option.
All direct contact leaders (Den Leaders, Cubmasters, Scoutmasters, Advisors, Skippers/Mates) must also complete Hazardous Weather Training (SCO_800), also online, and keep it up to date. Pack and Troop direct contact leaders all require a combination of in-person and online training. For the Troop – Introduction to Outdoor Leadership Skills (IOLS, S11). For the Pack – one person on a camping trip must complete Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation (BALOO, C32) .
