Online Training Courses

A new online and facilitated version of Scouts BSA training  will be available on August 3, 2020. If you are currently completing the training please complete prior to this date as BSA will be changing the Learning Plans for all positions – Scoutmaster/Assistant Scoutmaster, Committee Chair, Committee Member and Merit Badge Counselor. If you do not complete by August 3rd you will have to restart the  training using the new learning plans and modules.
The new online learning combines content resulting in fewer modules. Courses  Courses have also been streamlined 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 in the versions of the training.
Please note: Completion of the appropriate portion of the Scouts BSA facilitated session 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 and working with our Goose Creek District youth!
