Youth Protection Training Modules Update

Youth Protection Training Will Be Updated on June 1




• This does not change the frequency that an individual must take Youth Protection training. It continues to be two years and the renewal continues to be based on the date you took YPT.
• There are no large changes to the content, rather small adjustments.


Over the decades, the Boy Scouts of America has been a leader in developing training and policies designed to keep young people safe. Over time, these policies have become standard with organizations across the nation. True youth protection can be achieved only through the focused commitment of everyone in Scouting. It is the mission of Youth Protection volunteers and professionals to work within the Boy Scouts of America to maintain a culture of Youth Protection awareness and safety at the national, regional, area, council, district, and unit levels.

We have heard your feedback and are now releasing updates to the mandatory online Youth Protection Training to include items such as:
• New mobile friendly design.
• Updates to the certification test to make questions less ambiguous.

We will communicate when this new release is available – the target date is June 1st, 2021.

It is recommended that anyone who has started the online training prior to this date complete the training as the new versions will cause the loss of any progress in a module.
