There is also training available for adults, some of which is required such as Youth Protection Training and other courses that are Position-Specific as well as many more that can help adults run an effective Troop.

Many of the courses can be taken online at A log-in is required; however, anyone may create a user account and view the courses. Registered members of the BSA may provide their member numbers (as part of the user profile) to receive credit.
