Due to COVID-19 Pandemic all Face-to-Face training is on hold. Please log onto My.Scouting.Org to take Online Training courses

As soon as it is safe, we will host IOLS/BALOO sessions for those leaders that need this training before they go camping.

Honoring our commitment to delivering the best possible program to our youth, in Golden Empire Council we encourage all direct-contact adult leaders to complete basic training for their position. 

Your unit can see what training your leaders have completed by using the account of your committee chair, top unit leaders, or chartered organization representative (the unit "key three").

Every youth deserves a trained leader.  Thank you for your service and for seeking the training opportunities that will help you better serve our Scouts.  For more information, contact the Training team at

My.Scouting Tips:
Once successfully completed an online course, the radio dial button will change colors - from yellow (not started) to blue (in progress) to green (completed). Please keep in mind, if a course has been successfully completed, but the radio dial button has not changed in color, please contact with your name, the course name and the date completed, and we will update your record manually for you, and send you a pocket training completion card. There is no need to take the course a second, or third time.
