    • I agree. You don’t need to be thrown out depending on the violation, but a trend would be useful. It is done in industrial safety systems all of the time. At my work you could have 1 minor safety infraction and it would just go on your record. A trend of minor infractions, is a problem. For a medium infraction, you may get sent home for a day without pay. You can get fired for a major infraction. We are not talking an injury here, just not following the rules. I know there is another thread on how to improve YPT. This would be one.    I might have said this before, but no “corrections” or “near misses” would say you are not looking hard enough and your system isn’t healthy. 
    • My understanding is that they are making the training better for mobile applications and updated some test questions.  One of the councils had that info. 
    • As I said before: I want to see Clery style reports in which councils are required to report how many YP violations occur per year and the results (aggregated so no names). I'm betting that the number of "corrections" is absurdly low to this day.
    • YPT has changed every couple of years. Examples include not allowing Scouts more than 2 years apart from sharing tents. A couple of years before that, you need 2 21 year old adults, not just 1. Also all registered users need YPT, vs direct contact.    Even recently, troops can’t have any adults in Scoutbook that aren’t registered (and YPT).    These are just off the top of my head. It is an ongoing thing. It is far from NOTHING. You must not be a current leader, as we have to stay up to date on the rules and constantly correct those who forget about the new rules vs the old. 
    • As far as BSA is concerned, their modern YPT program is the best, most perfect thing and needs no improvements. And just coincidence I am sure, but the entire YPT program is being "updated" effective June 1.
