Update from Area 6 on Training Online

Posted on Updated on

Michael A. Crothers, Area 6 Training Chair, which is over Crossroads of America Council, reported this morning that:

On Monday morning at 8am Central BSA’s Information Delivery Group plans to start an upgrade to my.Scouting.  As a result of the installation ELearning training will be unavailable for most of the day Monday August 10. Please pass along to your unit leaders that they will be unable to take YPT or other online courses on Monday.  This announcement has also been posted on the myscouting.org landing page.

But here is the Good News:  After we complete this work on Monday then volunteers will be able to take online courses from the new my.Scouting in his/her MyDashboard.  There will be 4 new tabs in the MyTraining menu selection.

  1. The first one highlights the 3 Youth Protection Trainings available.  And when you click on the Take Course button it takes you to the training.
  2. The second tab “Training Center” allows you to take all online trainings.
  3. The Requirements tab lists each of your positions and the trainings required for each position
  4. And the Completions tab will display all training you have taken.

As a reminder in addition to council and district training chairs, all commissioners – as well as unit Key 3 0 have the ability to input training in the Training Manager Tool.
