Boy Scouts of America: Online Training Courses


Reason #17 - Making new friends

You now can get the training you need to be a great leader from the comfort of your own home via online training.

The BSA's Online Training Website is:   MyScouting.org  

You've already taken the first step by expressing interest in getting trained!  The second step is to visit MyScouting.org and create yourself an account- don't forget to enter your Scouting Member Number into your account, this will automatically link the courses you took online to your Scouting Profile at the Scout Service Center.  If you don't have a Scouting Member number right now- that's ok- you can always edit your profile and add it later.  See below for the MyScouting Account      Set-up Tutorial if you need some help.  Don't forget to note your username and password somewhere safe so you don't forget it!

Once you are logged into My Scouting, you'll see the BSA e-Learning link on the left side of the screen.  The BSA e-learning site is a GREAT place to begin your Scout training.  You'll see many trainings that are available, including some that may be required for you to be considered a Trained Leader in your registered position.  

Another neat feature of the MyScouting site is the Training Validation Link.  Through that link you can check on other Scout Leaders and see if they have done thier basic training!  Together, we'll make sure that all our Scouting Leader are trained in their positions so they have the tools to offer a great program to our Scouts!

If you have questions about this or other training questions contact your District Training Chair (contact information located on the Training Homepage) or the Council's Training Chairman Mr. Jerry Sheldon.  Thanks for all you do in Scouting!
