As of February 1, 2018, all Scouting adults take the same Youth Protection Training. It will be recorded as Y01: Youth Protection Training Cirtification, but will satisfy the requirement for all programs. It still needs to be taken every year.

Chief Seattle has written a help sheet for you: How to take Youth Protection Online Training. This training should automatically post to your Scouting record.

If this is your first time taking online training there is also: Setting Up a Account. Save your login and password because only one can be tied to your registration and give you credit for your training.

Still having trouble? Contact, or 206-725-5200.

In Chief Seattle, Scouters registered in a unit must have a Youth Protection date of March of the current year or later for recharter. [District members including Merit Badge Counselors need a date of August or later for the council’s recharter in June.]

Confused because says your Youth Protection hasn’t expired but we are telling you to take it again? Your expiration date has to be later than your new registration’s END date (the date it disappears in Yes, it is confusing, which is why we only look at the date you took Youth Protection.


The Boy Scouts of America requires Youth Protection training for all volunteers. The purpose of this policy is to increase awareness of this societal problem and to create even greater barriers to abuse than already exist in Scouting.
