Region and Area position specific training Update

Region and Area position specific training retirement

The BSA reorganization will be replacing 4 Regions and 27 Areas with 16 National Service Territories. This is planned to take effect on June 1st immediately after the National Annual meeting. When this happens, the positions of Regional, Assistant Regional, Area and Assistant Area commissioners will be retired. When that happens, the online position specific training for those positions will be retired as well and removed from the Scouting U Learning Management system.

Training records will continue to reflect this training for those who have completed this training. If you are presently taking any of these courses, please complete them prior to June 1st.

New training is being developed to support the National Service Territory Commissioner and Commissioner-elect. Please stay tuned to the commissioner development page for more information: Commissioner Development | Boy Scouts of America
