The new online learning portal for Venturing has been released in the BSA Learn Center, and starting is as simple as firing up your web browser.
As an alternative to classroom training at the local council, this portal is the latest in a series of Scouting U updates, which allows volunteers to complete their leader specific training completely online.
The training content for Venturing comprises of 14 e-learning modules and are broken into three easy-to-follow learning plans: Before the First Meeting, First 30 Days, and Position Trained.
