As statement above “registration requirements” and “basic position-specific leader training requirements” are different.
Comment: In most councils I would not expect BALOO (or IOLS) to be required for re-chartering. If I remember correctly there is a least one council that had success with improving their Scouting programs by requiring basic position-specific leader training instead of just encouraging this training. Check with your unit commissioner, district membership committee or district executive if you are not sure if your council is pilot testing requiring basic position-specific leader training.
There are two parts to registration training:
- Application reading requirements
- Abide by the
Scout Law, and
- Scouter Code of Conduct
- Subscribe to the precepts of the Declaration of Religious Principle
- Joining Requirements Youth protection training
- Complete Youth Protection training (YPT) before the application is processed and renew training as required by going to my.Scouting.org and creating an account
Basic Position-specific Leader Training
A “Trained” emblems only shows a person has completed basic position-specific leader training. Leaders are encourage to complete the requirements for training awards.
Training Awards for Adult Leaders in Packs
The training awards and keys are designed to recognize unit Scouters for tenure, training, and performance in their leadership roles. Progress record forms for these awards can be found at the links below.
Health and Safety Training
This training (for example BALOO) is activity based. BALOO is a program-wide requirement. BSA camps, bases, and certain activities (local through national) may have additional required health and safety training.
