New Online Youth Protection Training Modules In Effect and Fixed

Posted on Feb 11 2018 - 3:13pm

By October 1, 2018, all new and currently registered leaders will be required to complete BSA’s brand new Youth Protection Training (also known as "YPT2").  As previously announced, YPT2 is now available via BSA’s "Learn Center" -- and now the modules have been streamlined ot allow quicker view with less "loading" delay.  A big difference (and complicating factor) is that there isn't a "one and done" 28 minute video any longer.  Instead, there are four modules, you have to take them all, and pass a quiz in the final module.  The first module is "Overview & Policies", the second is "Sexual Abuse", the third is "Bullying", and the final is called "YPT Certification" and includes a quiz.  Very different from the former look -- first module (Overview & Policies) has a mixture of graphic slides and professionally shot videos (think PBS "Frontline").  Evidently, a syllabus for "live" courses will be available in June, 2018.

Not just for "leaders", but parents and helpers too ... because there's a lot of specialized stuff.  Yeah, online signup is over February 10, but ... yeah, they anticipate "walk ins" (you just might not get your preferred class, and may need to bring lunch). Plenty of Troop Level Scout skills (and skills for dealing with Troop Level Scouts), and a lot of "Cub Level" courses, like Super Summer Programs, STEM for Cub Scouts, How to Teach the Whittling Chip, Cub Scout Racing (Derbies – not just Pinewood), Cub Scout Outdoor Cooking, Cub Games, Rocket Time!, Fishing, Including Scouts with Special Needs, Cold Weather Camping, Iron Chef and more. See the Course Catalog and sign up at http://www.atlantabsa.org/training/supplemental-training/university-of-scouting/6962.See the Course Catalog and sign up at http://www.atlantabsa.org/training/supplemental-training/university-of-scouting/6962.  Also including the "all roles" Cub Leader Training led by the District Cub Trainer (and he will let you in his class for sure).  Some Youth Training also for Boy Scouts.
