2018 YPT Training Changes/Update

Adult Leaders and Scouting families,  
As of March 13, 2018, state of Texas has approved the YPT2 online for  
both youth protection training required as adult leaders to the youth and
also while providing leadership at camps in the State of Texas.

Those leaders only needing to satisfy the requirements for YPT
at Texas Camps can still attend a face-to-face YPT that only takes about 50 minutes.
This face-to-face YPT for Texas Camps only satisfies the YPT for Texas Camps,
nothing more. The new YPT2 will still need to be taken before October 1, 2018
if currently covered by a prior YPT (or 2 years from date issued whichever is sooner).

A YPT2 online version has been released for the classroom. It takes
over 90 minutes to 2 hours, though. We will schedule this training as
needed by the adult leaders in the Topsanah District. 

I hope the following is helpful with where you stand with the new required Youth Protection Training.
