Scouts Australia Mandatory Training

It is a Scouts Australia requirement that certain On Demand Learning modules be re-completed every two years. For modules relating to Child Protection and Work Health and Safety, in particular, the community reasonably expects that members maintain current knowledge of best practice.

For renewals you may be given the opportunity to complete a re-test at the beginning of the module and if you succeed, the module will unlock so you can review at your own pace before completing the end of module test. However, if the module has had significant changes or additions since you last completed it, a “re-test” option may not be available.

If you require support please contact the team at


How do I complete or renew my mandatory modules?

As an individual:

You can log on at any time that is convenient for you to complete the modules, the system will save your progress if you need to leave and return at a later date.

  1. Log into the Scouts Australia Training website (if this is your first time please scroll down for further instructions)
  2. Navigate to the Scouting Preliminary page
  3. Click on either module and start or choose to “Resit” the module
  4. Once complete, repeat step 2-3 with the remaining module if applicable

As a group session:

Anyone can organise a group session, it could look like:

  • A laptop in the kitchen during your next scout meeting
  • An online catch up with someone sharing their screen
  • Over a cup of tea before a scout meeting
  • Afternoon tea with your next closest group to support each other
