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 below, or have completed Youth Protection Training and a previous basic training course when it was current.  If you take training in-person, you can take training in any district.

Youth Protection Training is a joining requirement for all registered adults and must be retaken every year in the Mount Baker Council!
