What is the process for becoming a Merit Badge Counselor?

Step 1: Merit Badge Counselor Application

Print off and fill out the highlighted portions of the DISCLOSURE/AUTHORIZATION FORM the ADULT APPLICATION, and the MERIT BADGE COUNSELOR INFORMATION form. Turn in all forms to the council offices or to the District Executive in person, by mail, or by email.

Step 2: Complete Youth Protection Training Online

This is a completely online training that will take about 20 to 40 minutes to complete. This is required for all counselors to complete every two years. Your proof of completion of Youth Protection Training must be turned in with your Merit Badge Counselor Application!

To take Youth Protection training go to and create an account. You’ll receive an email notification with your account information, including a member ID/reference number.

Once you log into your account, click on the YOUth Protection training image on the top right.

Step 3: Complete Merit Badge Counselor Orientation

This module will guide new and potential merit badge counselors through their responsibilities in the role and will give them an understanding of the methods of counseling Scouts. It is intended as a short orientation course for new merit badge counselors before they begin working with Scouts.

This "Orientation" can be completed in one of three ways:

1. Individual Online Training 

2. Group Training at District Roundtable

3. At Orem Scout Offices when turning in your Adult Application and Youth Protection (Please plan on extra 15 minutes.)

Once you have completed the training, please email your District Executive:  Lee Ferrin
