All of this year's training opporunities are posted on our District Calendar. Chain Bridge District’s Training Committee is responsible for helping to train you, our adult volunteers, in the principles and methods of the BSA. We aim to give you the knowledge and resources needed to ensure that you can deliver a safe, high-quality program. Whether it be for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts or Venturing having a number of well-trained adults available with current BSA certifications for your programs is not just a ‘check the box’ exercise, but rather is the best way for your unit to meet its program objectives. It is also a fundamental part of your Journey To Excellence (JTE) and in order to qualify for the bronze, silver, or gold level of Quality Unit award. Make adult training an integral part of your Pack’s annual program plan, so that you will always have on hand a number of leaders with the right training qualifications to conduct all your activities
All Scouters are encouraged to create a MyScouting account and access online training through the MyScouting portal. Credit for this training will be recorded on each Scouters training record upon completion. It will also appear in your unit report. Simply visit MyScouting.Org and follow the directions. You'll only need to register once and you will have access to great Scouting resources there after.
Training Update Form
Here is a form you can use to update your training records. Unit software (Troopmaster, etc.) is not linked into BSA National's training records (myscouting.org), nor to the NCAC's ScoutNet data base. So information shown in your Unit's records may very well not appear in reports generated by the NCAC. If training is missing, email CBD Training Chairman Glen Johnson
