Leader Training
Becoming a Trained Leader 
Parents are the lifeblood of any Cub Scout Pack.  We depend on our parents to step up and help on numerous levels. Without their help, our program would be limited and our Scouts would be missing out on the fun. 

It is very easy to become a Trained Leader in Boy Scouts.  ALL the required training can be taken online - so you can take the courses at your own pace.
 
Steps Toward Leadership
 Talk to the Cubmaster or Committee Chair about your interest. Discuss which role(s) you might focus your effort. 
  1. Request an Adult Leader Application 
  2. Plan a good hour if completing a Den Leader, Cubmaster or Pack Committee module.
  3. Go to My.Scouting.org: If you do not already have an online account then click Create Account. Once account is created Sign In. Using Google Chrome or Internet Explorer as your web browser.  Do not use Firefox. 
  4. Click the Home link in top left and select My Dashboard.
  5. First: Click Take Course for Youth Protection.
  6. Once done with Youth Protection or (YP) then click the Training Center link at the center top of screen.
  7. Select the Cub Scouting bar.
  8. Select which category you are taking training for Den Leader, Cubmaster or Pack Committee. Most will be selecting Den Leader. Click Take Course next to the category.
  9. It will require you to Sign In again. If you saved your login and password then it should be there and just click Sign In.
  10. Select Cub Scouting a second time.
  11. Click the Select A Training Program box.
  12. Again choose a category. This is more specific depending on if you are a Tiger Leader, Cub Scout (Wolf / Bear) or Webelos Leader. All Leaders even Assistants, do the main Den Leader Position Specific Training, ALL Cubmaster and Assistants CM's do the Cubmaster Position Specific Training and Committee Chairs, including Members do the Committee Position Specific Chair Training.
  13. Once you click on the training there will be several modules and sub-modules. Hover over the main module and you will see a + sign next to the incomplete status. Click the + sign to add it to your "My Learning" plan.
  14. Scroll to the top of the page and click the link MY LEARNING. It will then load your learning plan and show you % complete for each section.
  15. Click the Title of the module to see the sub-modules. Click the Title of the sub-modules then click the Launch to the far bottom right of screen. 
  16. HINT: When on the modules screen of the Learning Plans, do a right click and open the module in New Tab. This will then open the sub-modules in a new tab and will allow you to go back to the modules when done. Otherwise you have to click on the link to My Learning again to get back to the modules.
  17. When on the screen you will see text that says "Click here to launch the course" in small text at top left of screen. Click that link. When done click the arrow to complete the course.
  18. I've gone through the training and it is so complicated. Click below for a more detailed PDF with screenshots. (Coming Soon).
  19. Submit your Application with a printed copy of your "Youth Protection" & "This is Scouting" and your Position Specific Training certificates.
  20. When you get your official BSA number you should plug it into your my.scouting.org account. (This helps at the end of the year when it comes time to re-charter our Pack.)
The more parents the better the program and the more rewarding it is for everyone.

NOTE: Your Leader application will not be submitted to Council till training has been completed.
