BREAKING NEWS: NEW BSA Training Requirement for SMs/ASMs ....

Posted on Apr 18 2018 - 8:26pm

BSA just announced that "direct-contact" Adult Leaders (which in Boy Scouts means Scoutmasters (SMs) and Assistant SMs (ASMs)) must take Weather Hazards Training to be considered "position-trained". See this link HERE for details and a link to the appropriate online course.
Note: SMs/ASMs who are already position-trained are "grandfathered in" but are encouraged to take this training anyway.
