When am I Considered Trained?
Being a "trained" Cub Scout leader includes two main requirements: Youth Protection and position-specific training.
Youth Protection Training
All adults in ANY position in Scouting must complete Youth Protection training. Youth Protection is also highly recommended for any Scout parents or adults who may assist at the pack or den level, even if they are not registered. Youth Protection training must be completed every two years in order to remain valid. Training can be done online at My.Scouting.org
, or it can be completed in a group setting. Learn more about Scouting's Youth Protection guidelines and its barriers to abuse at www.Scouting.org/YouthProtection
Each adult leader position in Cub Scouting has its own specialized training to get you on the fast track to leading an energetic group of Scouts! These basic training courses can be taken online at My.Scouting.org
. See below for a list of position-specific training available for Cub Scout leaders.
