Training Procedure

Online trainings are available on and take on average 30 - 45 minutes per course. To register for training you will be asked to setup an account on, this allows you to track your training as well as get reminders when your training is due for renewal.


If you do not already have a MyScouting account, you will need to create one (using your e-mail address as your login). This account will give you direct access to e-learning
courses (and other options depending on your profile).

If you already have a MyScouting account, simply log in as usual.

Scouting volunteers: have your council number and member ID handy (from your registration card) when creating your account. This will ensure you receive proper credit for
courses completed successfully.
(Note: If you have LOST your BSA Registration card, your REGISTRATION NUMBER IS ON YOUR UNIT CHARTER, so call your Unit Leader and ask him/her what it is.)

When creating your account please make sure to enter your BSA ID and select West Central Florida Council.


Once you complete a training please print the certificate and bring it to Mrs. Mihalinec at the next meeting or email a copy of it to me, my email address is on the website.
