Youth Protection Training

Effective June 1, 2010, every registered BSA volunteer is required to have Youth Protection training, and the renew it every two years. All Troop 185 ASM's, merit-badge counselors, etc. are encouraged to complete this training ASAP.  We encourage all parents to do so as well, and the BSA may soon require it of all adults who go on over-night trips.

You can get the required training on-line at the web site. For more information, see the site.

On a related note, the Knox Trail Council requires all adult leaders to submit a CORI request form.  You can download the form from the Council's CORI Policy page (see the bottom of that page.)

  • Youth Protection training is required for all BSA registered volunteers, regardless of their position.
  • New leaders are required to take Youth Protection training before submitting an application for registration. The certificate of completion for this training must be submitted at the time the application is made and before volunteer service with youth begins.
  • Youth Protection training must be taken every two years. If a volunteer's Youth Protection training record is not current at the time of recharter, the volunteer will not be reregistered.
