Jim Miller is asking about how to get a merit badge counselor, who happens
to be a teacher, certified in the BSA Youth Protection Training.
Wow, it seems to me that, assuming this is a teacher in the public schools,
they probably could teach the BSA a thing or two about youth protection,
not be required to sit through our training. Public school teachers,
health care providers, law enforcement workers and licensed day care
providers (at least in Maryland) are required to have far more training in
youth protection than is required by the BSA. As such, I would argue to
the council that they should be exempted from this requirement.
