RESPECT training replaces Child and Youth Safety

Training available on the David Huestis Learning Centre

RESPECT in Sport training is now available via the David Huestis Learning Centre. This training is mandatory and will replace the Child and Youth Safety training for all Scouters going forward.

If you already have the training (i.e. – you have it from your child’s hockey team) it is transferable to Scouting and you do not need to take the training over again.

There is a cost of $30 (total $33.90 with taxes) to take this course, and must be paid via Paypal or credit card.  NOLB (No One Left Behind) is assisting with the coverage, so you can put in a request to get the cost covered for you if that is something you might require.

The cost will be paid by each volunteer and may be reimbursed by a group.
