To take an online course, go to: http://olc.scouting.org. You need the registration number from your membership card to create an online account. After completing a course, you will be issued a certification card for that course.
There is also a Varsity Leader Fast Start (which has not yet been added to the Online Training Center).
If you're curious about your scouting skills, you might try the Boy Scout Leader Assessment tool. the assessment takes about an hour and will help you determine your areas of strength and where you can improve your scouting skills.
