It is our experience that sometimes a person's record in ScoutNET is not as up-to-date as it should be. If in reviewing your own records in MyScouting.org, or if your charter flags you as not having completed the training required for your position, but you have taken the required course, you may complete a Training Record for Adult Scouters form and submit it to the Council Office to have your records updated. If you took an equivalent course in the past that would meet today's training requirements, we will accept that training as well. Remember- A Scout is Honest.

Keeping Scouts safe and keeping Scouting leaders up to date with current information and methods means some of the BSA's training courses need to be retaken every couple of years.
Below is a list of these courses and how often they should be retaken to be valid:
By the way, the National Volunteer Training Committee encourages you to take the most current training courses for your Scouting position even if there is no expiration, or even if you are considered “trained” as a result of taking an older course. It is always better for our Scouts when their leaders stay up to date!
