Online Learning Center
The BSA Online Learning Center provides an easy alternative to complete courses. The courses are designed to help our parents and leaders improve their leadership skills and contribute to a quality scout program. You DO NOT need a BSA number to take any of the courses.
Youth Protection Training
Youth Protection training is designed to help you keep our youth safe from abuse. You will learn the Boy Scouts of America’s Youth Protection Guidelines, signs of abuse, and how to report suspected abuse. After each section of material, you will answer questions about that section’s topic. This course must be completed to earn the “Trained” emblem. Completion is noted automatically in the BSA training records database if the module is experienced online. More information can be views on the BSA’s Youth Protection page.
Leader Position-Specific Training
Cub Scout Leader Position-Specific Training has been developed to give new leaders the knowledge and skills needed to be successful. The first part is an introduction to Scouting and the Cub Scout Pack. The second part is a module on how Cub Scouts have fun in the pack and the den. The third part is specific training for each of the major Cub Scout leader positions in the pack; Cubmaster, Den Leader, Pack Committee and Pack Trainer.
Cub Scout Leader Position-Specific, along with Youth Protection Training will meet the requirements for a leader to be fully trained.
Outdoor Leader Skills
Basic Adult Leader Outdoor Orientation for Cub Scout leaders is a one-day training event that introduces participants to the skills needed to plan and conduct Pack outdoor activities, particularly pack camping. This training is required for any adult who is in charge of planning a pack campout, and it is required that at least one adult per pack complete B.A.L.O.O. training in order to apply for tour permits.
Outdoor Webelos Leader Training is for all Webelos leaders. This training course covers the skills & resources needed to teach the outdoor activity badges and helps to provide good & safe outdoor experiences. Completion of this training is required before a Webelos den can go on a campout. This is district-scheduled training.
