New Weather Safety for “Trained” Leaders

Effective April 30, 2018, new direct contact leaders must complete Hazardous Weather Training to be considered position trained.

This online training class was formerly “Recommended” but has now become a Required class for all leaders not “trained” by April 30, 2018.

Log onto my.scouting to take this very good training!

The WS81 training code is being retired and a new SCO_800 code has been created… BUT any existing time left on WS81 is still good and will carry over beyond April 30.

Roles impacted by this training requirement are:
Den Leader
Scoutmaster/Assistant Scoutmaster
Crew Advisor/Associate Advisor
Post Advisor/Associate Advisor
Ship Skipper, Mate
