Youth Protection Training

This is an important message for all adults in our troop. Anyone in leader ship or teaching merit badges please take the youth protection training classes as soon as possible. We have had trouble as we get closer to the year with the servers being overwhelmed and the videos being glitchy. Please read the message from the Boy Scouts below

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) places the greatest importance on creating the most secure environment possible for our youth members. One aspect is having our leaders trained in youth protection. Our records indicate that your Youth Protection certification associated to Member ID 122398421 will expire within the next two months.

Our youth protection policies state:

  • Youth Protection Training is required for all BSA registered adults.
  • No new adult can be registered without first completing Youth Protection Training at the time of registration.
  • Youth Protection Training must be taken every two years.
  • If a volunteer’s Youth Protection Training record is not current at the time of charter renewal, the volunteer will not be reregistered. 
  • Adults who will be present at a Scouting activity for 72 hours or more must register with BSA and complete a criminal background check and Youth Protection Training. The 72 hours need not be consecutive.

Important Notes:

  • If your member ID is not in your my.Scouting profile, please update your profile to add the member ID.
  • If you have multiple member IDs, please ensure that your latest Youth Protection Training is reflected in all your registrations.
  • If you have completed Youth Protection Training (YPT) and need help to update your training record, please provide a copy of your YPT certificate to your unit leader, who can update your training record in the Training Manager tool on Your unit commissioner or district executive can also assist in getting your record updated.
  • Trainings completed within the last 24 hours may not yet be reflected in your record. Please login to your my.Scouting account to confirm that your Youth Protection Training is updated under My Dashboard – My Training.
  • Should you have questions, you may contact your local council. If you do not know your council’s contact information, you may find it by going to, select Join from the banner at the top of the page, and enter your ZIP Code. The council information will display at the top right corner of the screen.
  • For more information on creating and maintaining a safe Scouting experience, please review the Guide to Safe Scoutingor the Scouting Safely website.

Thank you for your service to the youth in your community.
