For Scout Troops
Welcome to the training resource page for Scout Troops!
As we move to mandated leader training, please take a moment to check your training records and make sure they are up to date. Unit Leaders and Unit Committee Chairman, as well as Unit commissioners can access the units training reports in my.scouting, or feel free to email the council training team and we can send a Unit report.
