New “Scouts B.S.A.” Training

from the Summer 2020 Training Times

New “Scouts B.S.A.” Training

The new online/facilitated version of the Scouts BSA training will be available on August 3rd.

Because of the change in the Learning Management System (LMS) you will need to complete any modules you may be currently working on. If you do not complete the training by August 3rd you will have to restart the training using the new learning plans and modules. The change to the Learning Plans will affect the following positions – Scoutmaster/Assistant Scoutmaster, Committee Chair, Committee Member and Merit Badge Counselor. The new online learning combines content, resulting in fewer modules and streamlined courses to help reduce the total time it takes to complete the training. The new facilitated course uses offline versions of the learning modules to facilitate maintenance on any future changes – thus the online and facilitated content are simultaneously updated to ensure consistency.

Please note: Completion of the appropriate portion of the Scouts BSA training will meet the requirements for.

  • Scoutmaster & Assistant Scoutmaster: S24 Scoutmaster Specific Training
  • Merit Badge Counselor: D76 Merit Badge Counselor Orientation Training
  • Troop Committee Chair & Committee: WS10 Troop Committee Challenge

Thank you for being a trained leader!

Somehow I missed this. Any comments on the new modules?
