Training

IMPORTANT- Volunteer Scouters registered in Longhouse Council MUST have Youth Protection valid for the entire 12 month recharter period at the time of renewal.  If your Youth Protection training expires before the term of the renewed charter, then the scouter’s registration will not be renewed with the unit charter renewal.

Youth Protection begins with you.

Many training courses can and should be completed online.

Log onto My Scouting to take these training courses.  If you have specific questions about any course offerings please feel free to contact any members of the Council Training Committee.
