Merit Badge Counselor Training

A recent change that affects all current Merit Badge Counselors:
 

The Merit Badge Counselor position requires, at minimum, the YPT (online) and the Merit Badge Counselor Training (in person). That isn't anything new, but what is new is how the training requirements will be handled based on National and CIEC's procedures.

ALL NEW counselors will have to take both trainings before I can review and process the paperwork, and then forward the registration application to the council office.

ALL CURRENT counselors must have taken the MBC Training and have the training showing on their record, otherwise they cannot be renewed as a counselor at the end of this year. There are no exceptions allowed. Contact me if you attended a MBC Training but it is not showing up on your training record.

Because of the number of current Merit Badge Counselors whose records do not show they have taken the training, and all new applicants will need to take it, I will be presenting the MBC Training more often than usual over the next several months in order to have 100% of the Merit Badge Counselors in our district trained by the end of this year.
