What's New

Scouting U has added new learning content for the module on Leader Uniform. 
This module is in the Den Leader and Cubmaster learning plans. This module is designed to leaders understand the parts of the leader uniform, and why it is important for the leader to set an example for the youth in their den or pack by wearing the uniform properly. 
 
Online Learning Plan Updates for Cubmaster and Den Leaders
Scouting U has made two important updates to the learning plans for the online Cubmaster & Assistant Cubmaster Position Specific Training and the Den Leader Position Specific Training. In both cases a module was removed from each learning plan, see below for the specifics on each learning plan.

Cubmaster & Assistant Cubmaster Position Specific Training (Online)
In the Cubmaster – Position Trained learning plan the module titled “Working with Your Den Leader” was removed from the learning plan and will not be required for the completion of the training. 

Den Leader Position Specific Training (Online)
In the Den Leader – First 30 Days learning plan the module titled “Understanding Boys in the Den” was removed from the learning plan and will not be required for the completion of the training. This module holder is intended for future Den Chief training and is very close to the content already offered in the module titled “Working with Boys Overview”.

The learning plans in the BSA Learn Center will automatically recalculate the percentage of the module completed the next time that volunteer logs in

Scouting U has added new learning content for the module on Den Chief Roles and Responsibilities. This module is in the Den Leader and Cubmaster learning plans. In this program we learn how a Den Chief can be a great asset for Dens.  Cub Scouts have a youth role model to look up to, and the Boy Scout serving as your Den Chief learns about leadership.  As a Den Leader having an extra set of hands or someone to lead a game or activity is always helpful.

Den Leader Training Changes 
Training for Den Leaders has changed with the new online learning content.  Instead of having different training programs for each grade levels of Den Leader, all Den Leaders will complete the Den Leader Specific Training.  This will mean that you will not have to repeat training as the youth advance through the program from Tiger to Webelos.
 
If you are a Tiger Den Leader, Wolf Den Leader, Bear Den Leader or a Webelos Den Leader the training that you need to complete in the BSA LearnCenter is the Den Leader Specific Training.
 
Scouting U Launches New BSA Learn Center
Connecting volunteers to the learning content they need when they need it is the purpose of the new BSA LearnCenter. In today’s fast-paced world Scouting volunteers want to know how to deliver quality Scouting programs to youth, but need access training in short learning segments. Delivering a quality Scouting program makes volunteering as a leader rewarding. When the Scouting program is delivered as designed, leaders get to see the youth become more confident, resilient, and begin to learn and practice leadership at all levels.
 
The BSA Learn Center is designed to provide new and robust methods of delivering learning to leaders. Position Specific Training is now delivered in three parts called learning plans. The content for each learning plan is designed for the specific positon and is recommended to be taken before the first meeting, within the first 30 days, and within 90 days to complete position specific training. The training program is self-paced, allowing the volunteer to complete the training as quickly as they would like.
 
The first content offered in the new BSA LearnCenter is for Cub Scouting leaders. This content supports the new program changes to Cub Scouting. To access the training, log into My.Scouting.org. Create an account if you are a new leader, and select the online training button on the home page.
 
Keep up to date on new content by selecting the “What’s New” tab in the BSA LearnCenter. New content will be added regularly to support our volunteers.
