New Online Training
Scouting U is pleased to bring learning closer to home with the launch of the Boy Scout eLearning content.
Working closely with a team of Boy Scout program experts and experienced volunteers, specific content was developed to provide a high-quality learning experience while creating an additional training option for leaders and volunteers who need to complete their position specific training requirements for the Boy Scout program.
Nineteen modules, each ranging from 4-12 minutes in length, were designed to be viewed over a period time, and can be completed on a computer or tablet any time of day – from anywhere. This allows for you to split up the trainings. These modules are a valuable resource for leaders to refer to when needed.
For Unit and Assistant Unit Leaders, completion of the required eLearning modules for your role, in addition to the completion of the Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS) face-to-face course, will trigger you as position trained in the BSA Learn Center.
These online modules replace the Troop Committee Challenge for position trained requirements for Committee Chairs and Committee Members. If you are already position trained it will not affect your trained status.
Merit Badge Counselor training is also included in this release, which consists of six online modules that, once completed, will trigger Merit Badge Counselors as position trained.
Please note: Fast Start and Troop Committee Challenge trainings are now retired and have been replaced by this online learning. Please refer to the Boy Scout Position Trained Requirements chart to see the online module requirements necessary to be completed for your specific position.
Learners who prefer to complete their courses in a face-to-face classroom environment can find course dates by contacting Jayhawk Area council.
