Required Training Policy

Crossroads of America Council has adopted a policy of requiring all Direct Contact Leaders to be trained for their respective leadership positions. The council is committed to providing the highest quality program possible to the youth it serves. Having trained adult leaders is critical to fulfilling that commitment. Every youth deserves a trained leader.

Cub Scout Direct Contact Leaders must be trained for their respective positions by December 31, 2018, to be registered for their positions in 2019. Starting January 1, 2019 Cub Scout Leaders who assume Direct Contact positions must complete position specific training within 90 days of registering or if registering after September 30, must complete position specific training by December 31 of that year.

Scouts BSA Direct Contact Leaders must be trained for their respective positions by December 31, 2019, to be registered for their positions in 2020. Starting January 1, 2020 Scouts BSA leaders who assume Direct Contact positions have until the end of the calendar year to complete the training necessary for their positions.

Exploring, Venturing, and Sea Scout Direct Contact Leaders must be trained for their respective positions by December 31, 2020, to be registered for their positions in 2021. Starting January 1, 2021, Exploring, Venturing, and Sea Scout leaders who assume Direct Contact positions must complete position specific training within 90 days of registering or if registering after September 30, must complete position specific training by December 31 of that year.

Districts may elect to require other leaders to be trained for their respective position to be register.

All required training is available online at my.scouting.org with exception to Intro to Outdoor Leader Skills required for Scouts BSA. For a list of upcoming classroom trainings, check the Crossroads of America Council website at www.crossroadsbsa.org.
