These certifications must be retaken every two years:

     1. Exploring Ride Along Safety

Exploring Executive, Ken Brooks, is happy to present any of these trainings in a classroom setting if that would be the preferred method of completing the required training. Please email Ken with any requests: Kenneth.Brooks@Scouting.org
