Online Training

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 My.Scouting portal on the National BSA web site.

If you do not already have a My.Scouting 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.
