Greeting Scouters,
This is a gentle reminder that the Respect in Sport Training MUST be completed by August 31, 2017. This applies to all Scouting Volunteers. If it is not showing on your training by this date your will not be renewed for the upcoming Scouting year. The training can be accessed via the David Huestis Learning Centre on your MyScouts profile. See attached for FAQs on the training as well as accessing it. I would highly recommend that you make plans to complete this requirement as soon as possible.

Here is a link to that video for you – it was posted today:http://www.scoutinglife.ca/video/respect-sport-activity-leaders-training/
