Where to Get Trained

Online Training

Many of the required training courses can be completed online, in the convenience of your own home. Visit the BSA Online Training Center at My Scouting.


Your “MyScouting Profile”

New members will need to take YPT in order to submit your application. Create an online profile at My Scouting, complete the course, print your certificate, and attach it to your application.

Once your application is approved and you are registered, you will be assigned a BSA ID number. It is very important that you add this BSA ID number to your online profile at My Scouting, as we need to be able to track training for tour plans and re-chartering. You must enter this member ID into your MyScouting profile so that your local council has a record of the training you have taken online. To do this, log into MyScouting, click My Profile, and enter your member ID number. This links your Youth Protection training, and any other MyScouting training, to your BSA membership.
