 * Note: Fast Start Training is no longer required to be considered Trained; however it is still highly recommended. Additionally, This Is Scouting (was New Leader Essentials) is also no longer required (except for CORs).

 ** Some councils require Crews with Outdoor emphasis to take IOLS, other councils require all Crew leaders to take IOLS, the flyer on scouting.org[1] does not include IOLS for Venture leaders.

New Leader Training

The New Leader Training is customized training to help leaders easily graduate through the courses quickly and with little duplication.

Online Fast Start Training is the first step for all new volunteers as soon as they register and before meeting with any youth member. Fast Start Training is tailored to the leader's position:

Training continues through with Leader Specific Training which provides more specialized information about the leader's particular position and an introduction to outdoor leader skills (for some leaders - see chart above).

Scouting provides ongoing training opportunities for leaders through EDGE, Wood Badge, BALOO, classes at Philmont Training Center, etc (see below).

All BSA-registered volunteers must also complete Youth Protection Training.

Online or classroom Leader Training

Youth Protection training (YPT) is required for all BSA registered volunteers and must be retaken every two years. Some councils and units may require more frequent (e.g., annual) retaking of YPT). Check with your local council and unit to find out what their policies are.

In addition to YPT, registered adults should complete the following courses online at https://my.scouting.org:

  • Before the First Meeting
  • First 30 Days
  • Position Trained

Outdoor Leader Training

In addition to fulfilling other requirements, some unit leaders need outdoor-specific training.
