All the districts in the council continue to offer basic training about every two months to ensure that all leaders have the opportunity to get trained.
Please remember that by December 2013 all leaders must be fully trained to be able to register, and for the unit to be re-chartered.
Is is mandatory for ALL volunteers to have Youth Protection Training (YPT) and soon, POSITION SPECIFIC TRAINING, prior to any application be submitted to the Council. This training is available online 24/7 on the Online Training Center,
to be directed to the site. While your future leaders are on the MyScouting site, promote them to complete all training they need for their position, including basics & specifics. A trained leader promotes a great program for the boys.
If your meeting place has available internet access, it would be advisable to have the leaders log-on during a meeting to insure all have met this requirement. Once volunteers have taken the YPT, the certificate can be saved & emailed to Kelly Crites.
