What Makes A Trained Leader?


Adult leaders in units are considered trained, and eligible to wear the official Trained emblem, once they have completed Youth Protection Training and the training courses outlined in the links on the left, or have completed Youth Protection Training and a previous basic training course when it was current.

Youth Protection Training is a joining requirement for all registered adults and must be retaken every two years.
