Scoutmasters or the designated registrar for the troop may register their scouts at www.meritbadge.info beginning Saturday, October 13, 2018, at 8:00 pm (EST). Registration closes November 4th. The registrar will need to be registered with the BSA and current with Youth Protection Training. You’ll need your BSA # and the date you took your YPT. You can find this by logging on to www.myscouting.org or checking with your local council.
This might help:
To create a profile at meritbadge.info, you’ll need the following information:
Your Council Name
Your District Name
Youth Protection Training date (Must be within the past two years.)
BSA ID # (on your registration card or you can call the scout office.) To expedite things you can make up a number as long as you promise to get the real number and update your profile later.
Your Troop #
Once you’ve created your profile, registering the scouts is pretty easy. Scroll down past the long list of merit badges on our site, and you’ll see instructions for registering scouts.
Let me know if you need more help.
Beginning this year, we will offer early registration for units who provide three or more merit badge sessions taught by an adult member of their unit (unit leader, committee member, or parent). This can be one counselor teaching three sessions, or three counselors teaching a session each. Visit Merit Badge Counselors under the STAFF tab to see how to register as a MB counselor.
