TrainingYouth Protection Training

Youth Protection training is required for all registered Scout volunteers and must be completed every two years.  If a volunteer's Youth Protection training records is not current at the time of recharter, the volunteer will not be re-registered.

You do not have to be a registered member of the Boy Scouts of America to take Youth Protection training.
To take Youth Protection training go to and create an account. You’ll receive an email notification with your account information, including a member ID/reference number.
From the portal, click Menu then My Dashboard from the menu list. The My Training page displays to take Youth Protection training. Upon completion, you may print a training certificate to submit with a volunteer application. Your training will automatically be updated in our system and associated with the member ID/reference number issued when you created the account.
When your volunteer application is approved, you will receive a BSA membership card that includes your member ID number.
