Missing Credit? How to Update Your Training Record

Before you send in missing training, please check your official training record in Please try to do all of your updates at once, and only send missing training. Once you have determined what is missing, send an email to Include: your full name, district, unit (type and number), and missing training with date taken (approximate dates are acceptable).

Only official BSA training such as Den Leader Training or Venturing Advisor Training can be added to your Scouting record. Locally produced training can help you be more effective in your Scouting position but cannot be entered. Program and Training Conference has many of these classes, for example: Dutch Oven Cooking Basics or Life to Eagle.

Your training record is more important to you than to anyone else, so keep a copy of all your training as you go along. If you have questions or problems with your record, please contact

Instructor Syllabus

You can find the latest syllabus/outline for most of your training on the national website at You may need to do a little scrolling to find the one you want, but it will be the current version.

Make sure your participants get credit.

Submit a roster, Excel or PDF! Remember, if a name is misspelled or unreadable, none of the BSA record keeping programs will be able to find it. If you are not into forms, email, include the title of the training with its completions date and a roster of participants that should get credit. Your roster needs to include for each participant: full name, email address, district, and unit (type and number). In addition, address and phone number are helpful for anyone not registered with BSA.
