How to make sure you’ve taken updated Youth Protection and print your certificate

By now you’ve heard that everyone must take the updated, online Youth Protection training course in order for their unit to recharter.

This includes any registered leaders who took Youth Protection training — online or in person — before Feb. 1, 2018.

If you still need to take your training, follow the instructions in this PDF.

If you’ve already taken the updated course but have a few questions, keep reading. We’ll answer:

  • How do I know when I took Youth Protection training?
  • When does my training expire?
  • How do I print a completion certificate to give to a fellow Scout leader who requests one?

I’ve got you covered.

How to check your Youth Protection training date and expiration

  1. Log in to My.Scouting.org.
  2. Click “Menu” at the top left.
  3. Click “My Dashboard.”
  4. Make sure you’re under “My Training” and “YPT.”
  5. Note the date next to “Youth Protection Training Certification.” You’ll see the date you completed the course right there. Below that, you’ll find the date your certification expires — two years after completion.
  6. If your completion date is on or after 02/01/18, you have taken the updated training.
  7. Congrats! Thanks for your efforts to help keep Scouts safe.
