Trained Strip



This patch is worn underneath the position of responsibility
patch by youth and adults who have completed appropriate training.
Created:
Level:Boy Scouts, Venturers, Sea Scouts, and Scouters


The Trained strip is used to recognize those registered adults and youth who have completed training required for their position.

Boy Scouts, Venturers, or Sea Scouts who successfully complete National Youth Leadership Training may wear the "NYLT" trained strip instead of the "Trained" strip.

Contents

Online/Physical Training

After completing Youth Protection training at my.scouting.org, printing out the certificate of completion, then registering, a leader should return to my.scouting.org and enter their Scouting ID, then complete the appropriate modules for their position.


Cub Scout leaders should complete:

  1. Before (Your) 1st Meeting (as appropriate)
  2. Before (Your) 1st Outdoor Activity (as appropriate)
  3. Earning Your Training Strip

All other leaders should complete:

  1. Before the First Meeting
  2. First 30 Days
  3. Position Trained

Commissioners all have a precursor Acclimation module as well. There are slight variations for some other leadership positions, such as merit badge counselors who lack a "First 30 Days" module, etc.

These classes are all available in classroom formats as well as online training.

The last bit required

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

  • Chartered Organization Representative -- D72 Training the Chartered Org Rep
  • Pack Trainer -- D70 Fundamentals of Training
  • Scoutmaster/Asst. -- 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.

Additional training

There are many more training opportunities available. For instance, Wood Badge, National Camping School, etc.

Leadership training

Advanced training

Youth (including Venturers and Sea Scouts under 21 years old)
Adults

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.
