If you have not taken the new course, which was released in mid-February, your YPT expiration date has been reset to September 30. Now would be a great time to re-take YPT if you haven’t done so since February.
This training isÂ mandatory for all registered adults regardless of positionÂ and highly recommended for all non-registered parents. Scouters who do not take the new YPT prior to October 1 will have their registration cancelled, meaning they are no longer a registered leader – ineligible to lead a den or pack, serve as Scoutmaster or on the committee, or counsel Scouts in merit badges.
Go to https://my.scouting.org to check your training status or to retake Youth Protection Training.Â Do it now before the program year gets going and you’re short on time and before the site gets overloaded by last minute re-trainers!This post first appeared on Bobwhite Blather.
