Visit www.myscouting.org to complete your online training. Be sure to link your Personal Identification Number commonly referred to as your "PID," and select your council "grand canyon council." Without your PID in your myscouting.org account you will not recieve credit for the online training you have completed as far as your current council is concerned. In order to get a PID in your current council, get registered with your council by filling out an adult application and having it processed at your council's office. If you are currently registered or you turned in your application a few weeks ago, your unit can obtain your PID for you at anytime through Internet Advancement.
I created my account online at myscouting.org and put in my Identification Number (PID) and selected my council. However, when I login in and click on "update profile," it shows the contact information of another person and shows a different middle and last name. THen when I try to change my information, it always goes back to this other person's information. What do I need to do to fix this?
www.myscouting.org is a little buggy still. The best way to resolve this is to login to your accound, click on "update profile", then at the bottom where your ID number is shown, click on the linke to delete your linked number. Then logout. Then create a NEW account on www.myscouting.org with a NEW and DIFFERENT user name.
Once you get in all shousl be fixed except that all the training you've don't won't be green anyonemore. Since you had done the training and had your PID on the old account, your records should still show on the council records so you won't need to do the training again. Now you can do any future training online without the above mentioned problem.
Be sure to click on the "training validation" link and pop in your PID to verify yoru council has credit for what training you did. Anything missing will either have to be redone or you will need to email your council registrar to request credit for the training record(s) you lost. If you need to send over such a request, best guesses on the day, month, and year those training were completed is okay.
I have recently agreed to become the Adult Training Coordinator for my troop. We want to be certain the we have all of our records and adult leaders in compliance with the Council and the BSA at large. To that end I want to take the liberty of asking you to allow me online access to our Troops adult training records. Please let me know if you require anything more from me or our Scoutmaster.
This is super easy. Just login to your troop's Internet Advancement. Then take note of the PID for each person you want to check training records on. Then login to your personal myscouting.org account and click on “training validation”, then click on “all training” then use the drop down to select “User ID” and then pop in their PID. Poof, you got it for all the training they did online.
If the person doesn’t have credit it won’t show up even if they had done it. If they are saying they did it online but it isn’t showing up, then they probably need to log back into their own personal myscouting.org account, click on “update my profile” and go to the very bottom, pop in their PID, select our council, and click “add” and instantly all their training online is now credited to our council and will show up from now on for the training validation tool. Anyone with a myscouting.org account can check training records on another person if they have that person's PID.
