Youth Protection Training Renewals

Many adults are renewing their Youth Protection Training (YPT) in preparation for rechartering. Here are some important tips:

  1. Make sure you are taking the mandatory, NOT the recommended lesson plan.
  2. There are four mandatory modules. Take a screen shot of each module completion, preferably with a timestamp if possible.
    • Overview and Policies v2
    • Sexual Abuse v2
    • Bullying v2
    • Certification Test v2
  3. Once you have taken a screen shot of your module completion, DO NOT CLICK NEXT. Instead, exit your browser window and start the subsequent module "fresh" from the "Mandatory YPT Course" screen.

By following these steps, you should receive a certificate within 24 hours. If you experience problems, please contact your unit's Training Chair or servicing Commissioner.
