HOW do I get trained?

Training is an essential part of being a quality Scout Leader. Hudson Valley Council and the Boy Scouts of America National Council have made it easier than ever to become a Trained Leader! Many of the Position-Specific training courses are available online at my.scouting. Hudson Valley Council's Training Committee does a wonderful job offering "Classroom Sessions" for all of the required and many supplemental training courses.

Once you have been registered in a position with the BSA, you should visit my.scouting.org If you do not have a personal profile for my.scouting.org follow the instructions below. You will likely already have an account from when you completed Youth Protection Training
