One of the keys to a successful Scouting experience for young people, second only to the selection of the right person for each responsibility, is trained volunteer leadership. Leadership training provides adult leaders with fundamental information about the aims and methods of the movement, as well as specifics about their particular roles in Scouting.
For this reason, the Southern Sierra Council is committed to providing top quality training opportunities for leaders, parents, and Scouts at the district and council levels. Through these efforts, the delivery of a better and quality Scouting program can be provided to our entire youth membership.
Training courses traditionally offered in a classroom setting are now available through the BSA’s E-Learning site. This allows users to take training courses online at their convenience and bookmark their place in a course thereby allowing them to return at a later date and complete the course.
How to Take A Training Course
To take a training course you must login to the MyScouting portal on the National BSA web site.
If you do not already have a MyScouting login, you will need to create one (using your e-mail address as your login). This account will give you direct access to e-learning courses (and other options depending on your profile). If you are a Scouting volunteer, be sure to have your council number and member ID handy (from your registration card) when creating your account. This will ensure you receive proper credit for courses completed successfully.
If you already have a My.Scouting login, simply log in as usual. Go to my.scouting.org
