Youth Protection Training (for adults)

Click here for information on the Youth Protection Program.

For online YOUTH PROTECTION TRAINING (YPT), if you do not already have a BSA account, you may create an account and login.  Here’s how:

  • Go to the My Scouting Homepage
  • If an existing member, login.  Or, create your login.
  • From the my.Scouting home page, select the red “Youth Protection Begins with YOU” emblem on the right side of the page.
  • Select “YPT” from the tab at the top of the page and ‘Take Course’.

The online course was updated in March 2018.  ALL adults are required to have a new YPT certificate by September 2018.  YPT is required for all leaders and any adult participating in Scout activity. Once you have completed the online training, e-mail a copy of your certification to us.

Additional training may be taken at the same site. Each course takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.  Recommended online training for adult leadership and committee members include:

* This Is Scouting
* Fast Start: Boy Scouting
* Troop Committee Challenge
