Merit Badge Counselors

Posted By John Wnek Jr, Tuesday, March 17, 2015
Updated: Tuesday, October 29, 2013

Merit Badge Councelors, as all other adult leaders are required to be current in their Youth Protection Training.  While the training is good for two years it is a good idea to renew every year at Recharter time.  IF your YPT is not current you will be dropped from the Counselor list.  


In order to continue, each counselor's Youth Protection training needs to be updated for the coming year.  If yours has expired or will expire please retake the training now e-mail a copy of your certificate to  If there are any changes to the Merit Badges you counsel,  please sent a notice naming the badges to delete or send a copy of the Meritbadge Counselors Application listing the new badges. Include your YPT date and BSA ID numbe on all copies.
