BSA Online Training for Parents and Adult Leaders

Here's a quick and fairly painless way to learn more about Scouting. Most take 30 minutes to an hour. Some will be required for certain Troop 97 activities (click here for a single-sheet summary of training requirements for adults in various Scouting roles). Why wait? Find out more!
Go to the BSA 'My Scouting' page for training, including:

  • BSA Youth Protection (required for all registered adults and on many activities; valid for 2 years)
  • BSA "Hazardous Weather Training" (required for at least one adult on all outings; valid for 2 years)
