Have you ever wondered if your BSA adult leader training record is up-to-date? Or why leaders are listed as Untrained on your unit roster even though you know they've taken the appropriate courses? There is now online assistance available to answer those questions via www.myscouting.org.
"Training Validation" is a new menu item located under E-Learning on the left hand side menu. Clicking on Training Validation opens a new Training Search window. Searching via the BSA member identification number usually works best. A link for "Advanced Search" allows for the input of a Scouter's name. A help button on the upper right side of the web page (the question mark) can also provide assistance.
If completed training is not shown, training points of contact or individual leaders can submit changes to official BSA training records by filling out a Training Update Form and sending it to your district leadership development chair. The form is available at:
NOTE: When completing online training at www.myscouting.org, make sure you enter your full name, council number (082), and BSA membership ID number. That way, your permanent BSA training record will be AUTOMATICALLY UPDATED after you complete each course. There is NO NEED to submit the update form in these instances.
