Merit Badge Counselor training is now available on-line at the BSA Learn Center. The training consists of six short video courses with test questions at the end of each. Each segment may be taken independently. The total training time should be about an hour – less if you have already taken some of the courses in the scoutmaster or committee position training sequences.
You may access the BSA Learn Center through your my.scouting.org account, either by clicking on the Learn Center Logo on the home page after login or through the Training Center tab on your dashboard. In the Course Catalog tab add the two Merit Badge Counselor learning plans to your account (click the green plus) and then access the training through the Learn Center My Learning tab.
The in-person version of this training is still available. If your unit would like to schedule the in-person version of the Merit Counselor training, contact Dave Rypka.
