Sometimes, physical classroom training can be used if desired or if online training isn't an option (such as in places without internet access). The codes, such as C40, refer to official Boy Scout training numbers). All of these training classes can instead be taken online for a specific position by completing Before the First Meeting, First 30 Days, and Position Trained, at my.scouting.org.

Having completed those modules, most leaders will then be trained for their position, with the exception of the following positions which need the listed training classes:

  • Chartered Organization Representative -- D72 Training the Chartered Org Rep
  • Pack Trainer -- D70 Fundamentals of Training
  • Scoutmaster/Asst./11-year/Varsity Coach -- S11 Intro to Outdoor Leadership Skills

At this point, a leader may wear the Trained patch with the appropriate Position of Responsibility patch.

Again, all BSA-registered volunteers must also complete Youth Protection Training.
