What is MyScouting?
MyScouting (www.myscouting.org) is, among other things, the BSA's online training center. Many of the Basic Leader Trainings courses, including Youth Protection Training, This is Scouting, and some Position Specific Trainings, can be completed online to move you toward Trained Status. While anyone can create a login and use the MyScouting system, it is best used when connected to your Membership ID to update your training records with Bucks County Council.
