YPT Update for the State of Texas!

From Circle Ten's Website:  

"It is official, the current 2018 Online Youth Protection Training meets state requirements and has been approved by the State of Texas.  

If you have completed the new BSA online Youth Protection Training course on or after March 13, 2018, you no longer need to take a classroom-facilitated version of the course to attend a licensed camp (camps of four or more days).  

If you have not taken the new BSA online Youth Protection Training course, you must do so by October 1, 2018 or you won't be able to re-charter with your unit."  

While October is the deadline for rechartering, if you are attending any camp greater than 72 hours in duration (i.e., resident camp or a high adventure base) you must take this training prior to the activity unless you currenly hold an un-expired certificate from a prior classroom-facilitated ("face-to-face") training session.
