New leaders - Getting on-line
Go to

When you go to the MyScouting website, you will be required to create a login (click on "Create an account"). Since you are new to Scouting, you will not yet have your membership ID, register as “I am new and don't know my member ID.” Complete the remainder of the registration screens to gain access to the web sight. You will then have access to the training.

As you complete a training course, print out the certificate for your personal records.

Important: In order for your training to be officially recorded, once you have your BSA Membership ID, you will need to enter this number in the MyScouting profile that you used for the training. When your profile has been updated with your membership ID, all of your previous and future on-line training will be officially recorded.

Obtaining Your BSA Membership ID
1. Your membership ID is printed on your membership card that is sent to your unit each year.
2. Your unit advancement coordinator can look-up your ID in the on-line advancement website. (This approach will give you the soonest access to your ID number.)

My BSA Training Record
You can view your own training record on-line in MyScouting.org. This is your official BSA record and it is available online by clicking the “Training Validation” link at https://myscouting.scouting.org.

You will notice that the training record found on the Training Validation page will only display Youth Protection Training (YPT) if it has been completed in the past two years.  If you believe that you have completed training courses that are not reflected in your record, please talk to the Pack Trainer for assistance in getting your account updated. 
If BSA's record shows a course completion year of 1911, this indicates that BSA knows that you have completed the specific training course but their records do not have a valid date.
