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.

Those of you who have completed all other training will have until August, 2017 to complete this. Those Scouters who are currently registering now for the next Scouting year, I would strongly suggest you take this training right away, but you also have until August 2017 to complete.

The attached communication has further information about the training. It takes about 3 hours total to complete.

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 we 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.
