Youth Protection Training
The Boy Scouts of America is a leading youth organization when it comes to safety. BSA policy, effective June 1, 2010:
Youth Protection training is required for all BSA registered volunteers, regardless of their position.
New leaders are required to take Youth Protection training before submitting an application for registration. The certificate of completion for this
training must be submitted at the time the application is made and before volunteer service with youth begins. Youth Protection training must be taken
every two years. If a volunteer's Youth Protection training record is not current at the time of recharter, the volunteer will not be reregistered.
Taking the Training
FYI: The training, including answering 25 questions, takes about 20-25 min.
1. Create an account on Scouting.org.
2. Take the training.
- Sign in, using your new account.
- From the menu on the left, click E-Learning.
- From the General tab, scroll down to Youth Protection Training and click Take Course.
- When you are finished, type in your name and unit number, select "Mohegan Council - Worcester, MA 254" before printing the certificate.
- When you complete the course, print a certificate of completion to submit with a volunteer application, or submit the certificate to
the unit leader or committee chair for processing at the local council. If you have the ability to print to PDF, that is your best
option as you can then E. Mail the certificate to us.
3. Link your training to your membership number.
- When your volunteer application is approved, you will receive your
membership ID number on a BSA membership card or by E. Mail. After
you receive your membership ID number, log onto MyScouting, click My
Profile, and enter your member ID number. This links your Youth
Protection training records and any other MyScouting training records
you have, to your BSA membership.
