It’s midnight, you’re in pajamas and you’re sitting on the couch scrolling Facebook on your tablet. Sounds like the perfect time to get trained.
With the launch of Scouting U’s eLearning content for Boy Scout leaders, Scouters now can get trained on their own schedule — anywhere, any time.
The courses are conveniently organized by role —Cubmaster, Scoutmaster, assistant Scoutmaster, Varsity coach, assistant Varsity coach, troop/team committee chairman, troop/team committee member and merit badge counselor — meaning you’ll know exactly which training courses you need to be “Trained.”
Modules range from five to 15 minutes in length. They’re designed to be completed at your own pace — all at once or one at a time.
The modules are grouped into three learning plans:
- Complete before the first meeting
- Complete within the first 30 days in your volunteer role
- Complete to become “position trained”
The modules stay put once you’re done, so you can return to review any section at any time.

How were these eLearning courses created?
A team of Boy Scout program experts and experienced volunteers wanted to provide a high-quality learning experience while creating an additional training option for leaders and volunteers who need to complete their position-specific training requirements.
