Already a trained adult leader?
To help us keep on top of things (if you have not already done so), fill out the Adult Volunteer Training Record, save it with your name on it, and email a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org (Committee Chair) and to Lee Anne McKee, email@example.com (Buckeye District staff). If you have already taken training, please make sure your on-line record at http://myscouting.org reflects that training correctly. If you need more information, want to explore options, or have questions, contact Bill Alsnauer at 614.296.5960.
Merit Badge Counselor
BSA Merit Badge Counselor Application – People who want to be counselors are our most valuable asset in making a customized Scout program fitting to each boy. Here’s the form you’ll have to complete and give to the Council. Ask us about how this works. Youth protection training is required for each merit badge counselor, so plan on a hour for this too. We also have tips for Exceptional Merit Badge Counseling, so you can see how straightforward this is.
BSA On-line Training
BSA national e-learning programs (you’ll need your registration number to use this site, and it’s best viewed in Internet Explorer with a high-speed internet connection):
- BSA Safe Scouting online, to prepare for each event
- Youth protection training, including a link to record your training with the Council
- Safe Swim Defense & Safety Afloat, with a provision to produce a card to carry
- Planning and Preparing for Hazardous Weather, because tour permits require that at least one adult must have passed this training e-course provided by National BSA.
