The Circle Ten Council Training Committee has distributed a "Unit Training Status" email to all Unit Key-3 Leaders who have a valid email on file with BSA. If you are a Unit Key-3 Leader and did not receive that email first check your spam/junk mail folder. If there, make sure you whitelist/allow email from the c10training.org domain. If not there, send an email request to admin@c10training.org and the report will be forwarded to you. Please specify your Leadership Role, Unit and District information in  your request.


Everyone, Key-3 Leader or not, should confirm your http://myscouting.org account profile reflects your current contact information. If you do not yet have a http://myscouting.org account please create one so you will have the ability to not only update your profile but take online classes, review your documented training and be prepared for the next generation of online tools coming soon!
