Use our Adult Training Record to keep track of your completed trainings.
Login to your myGS account to access the applicable trainings for your role. This will take you to gsLearn for online trainings. You can also register for specific trainigns under the Events registration page.
Who teaches Girl Scout training courses?
GSSJC facilitators conduct most classes. These volunteers give their time to share their knowledge and love of Girl Scouting with all Girl Scout adults. Some specialized classes may be delivered by Girl Scout staff members or by special consultants or experts in a particular field.
Do I need to register for training?
Yes and no! Registration is required for live training courses (virtual and in person). We encourage everyone to register early. All deadlines are final but many of our training courses fill long before the registration closes. The preferred method of registration is to register online through the Events registration page. Encourage your troop committee to attend training with you. Registration is not required for trainings offered in gsLearn.
What if I need to cancel my registration for a course?
Call Customer Service as early as possible at 1-800-392-4340 or 713-292-0300. Your call may give someone else the opportunity to attend the course. No transfers or refunds will be provided after two weeks prior to the training date.
How will I know if I have been accepted into a course?
All live training (virtual or in person) that you are confirmed for is listed in the Events section of your MyGS profile. Look there for additional documents and the location of your training.
What do I do if my training session runs through the lunch hour?
If your class runs through the lunch hour, please bring a lunch/drink unless otherwise indicated within the course description. The Girl Scout Center has soft drinks available in vending machines.
What if I have special needs?
It is recommended that volunteers with special needs make their needs known when registering so facilitators can prepare accordingly. Most of the facilities used by our council are handicap accessible.
