Training

Training is an essential tool to help you as a volunteer in providing the best quality program possible to the youth you serve.  Recognizing this importance, the desire of reducing risk management and improving retention, the Executive Board of the Shenandoah Area Council requires all registered volunteers, regardless of their position, to be fully trained as required for their position.

Youth Protection Training:

Youth Protection Training (YPT) is required for EVERY TWO YEARS and recommended every year.  New leaders are REQUIRED to take this before they submit their application for registration.  The certificate of completion for this training can be printed at the end of the training session.  This session covers the types of abuse, two-deep leadership and reporting requirements.

Volunteer Training Policy

June 19, 2017

Overview

Recognizing the importance of a quality program, and the desire of reducing risk management and improving retention, we require all registered volunteers at all levels to be fully trained for their position(s) as defined by National BSA including Youth Protection Training.

Youth Protection Training

No adult regardless of position, age 18 and older, will be registered at the time of application or at time of rechartering. Noncompliance will result in membership being expired temporarily until YPT certification is provided.

Leader Position Training

New adults or current adults changing positions must be Leader Position Trained as found at www.scouting.org/training/adult within 60 days of their registration. Those requiring Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills (IOLS), must complete IOLS within 6 months of their registration. Noncompliance will result in membership being expired temporarily until YPT certification is provided.

Training Opportunities

Leader Position Training can be taken online at www.my.scouting.org or in person within the districts. IOLS will be provided by the council in the spring and during each week of Summer Camp. Districts may provide IOLS during the year as needed. Listed below is scheduled training courses within the council
