Posted by jmbuchanan on Apr 29 2018 - 9:29pm

BAD NEWS: Your adult Youth Protection Training has been reset to expire at the end of September regardless of when you may have taken it. BSA has come out with a new version that we all need to take before October 1.

BSA ANNOUNCEMENT: An updated youth protection training is available for staff, leaders and parents. The training includes a three-module course that all leaders will be required to complete by September 30, 2018. The training encompasses Venturing and Exploring Youth Protection, therefore those videos are no longer available.
We encourage you to take the new training and spread the word. For technical questions or issues, please contact the Member Care Contact Center at myscouting@scouting.org.

GOOD NEWS: The new course is a significant update and most say a significant improvement.
