Changes to American Red Cross Training Agreement Announced

Changes to American Red Cross Training Agreement Announced

An updated Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) has been completed between the American Red Cross and the Boy Scouts of America that strengthens and expands the existing relationship. As a result, additional services are now available to local councils and units, including discounts on full service training agreements as well as the more traditional authorized provider agreements with Scouters who are already ARC instructors or want to become one to teach Scouts or Scouters.

The new agreement also offers:

  • 20 percent discount for full service training classes
  • 47 percent discount for authorized provider courses

Units without an agreement need to sign an authorized provider or full service agreement to participate. Please call the Training Support Center at 1-800-REDCROSS (1-800-733-2767) for the following services:

  • Option training and certifications
  • Option for classes and certifications
  • Option for group training

Existing training agreements between the Red Cross and individual councils, units or instructors will be updated on renewal, with existing pricing changes handled through normal ARC processes. (30 days from notification).
