Adult Leader Training

One of the keys to a successful Scouting experience for young people, second only to the selection of the right person for each responsibility, is trained volunteer leadership. Leadership training provides adult leaders with fundamental information about the aims and methods of the movement, as well as specifics about their particular roles in Scouting.

For this reason, the Hawkeye Area Council is committed to provide top quality training opportunities for leaders, parents and Scouts at the district and council levels. Through these efforts, the delivery of a better and quality Scouting program can be provided to our entire youth membership.


Over the decades, the Boy Scouts of America has been a leader in developing training and policies designed to keep young people safe. These comprehensive policies were considered groundbreaking when they were developed and soon became the standard used by other organizations for safeguarding youth. But when it comes to the safety of children, our goal is to continually improve.    

March 1, 2019 - Youth Protection Training Update

On March 1, 2019, the online Youth Protection course will be replaced with an updated version.

If you have started—but not completed—the current Y01 Youth Protection Training: You must complete the training by February 28th, or any progress you have made will not transfer, due to the new learning plan. Otherwise, you may simply start over with the new training plan on March 1, 2019.

If you HAVE already completed the current Y01 Youth Protection Training: You WILL NOT be affected. You DO NOT have to retake the training when the March 1, 2019 course is released.

Completions will not be recorded on until you have completed all 3 modules and the certification test.

To print your completion certificate, return to, select "Menu" then "My Dashboard." Your Youth Protection Training Certificate can be printed by selecting the printer icon in the "YPT Status" area.
