Congratulations! You have been recommended as an Assistant Online Trainer (AOT). Please follow the steps below to submit your Leadership Application and to request your Online Leaders Meeting (OLM):


Note: During this AOT application process there may be some references to ‘OGL’ when it should say ‘AOT’. We apologize for any confusion this may cause, as currently the same application procedure is used for OGLs and AOTs.


Submit Leadership Application

  1. Login to your BSF Online account
  2. Go to ‘Application & Status’ on the Navigation menu, Account > Application & Status
  3. Select ‘Edit/Update’, or select ‘Withdraw’ to remove yourself from the recommendation process at any time
  4. After selecting ‘Edit/Update’, check the box to acknowledge “I have read and understood the instructions above for the application process.”
  5. Select ‘Next’
  6. Complete all the required fields noted by an ‘*’ (Note: This information does not update your User Profile. To update your profile, please go to ‘Edit Profile’ on the Navigation menu.)
  7. If you would like to complete your application later, you may ‘Save’ at any time
  8. When all required fields are complete, and you are ready to submit your application, go to the bottom of the final application page. Check the box to acknowledge “I submit this Leadership Application having answered to the best of my knowledge and ability.” and type your full name into the white box as directed in lieu of a signature
  9. Select ‘Submit Application’


Request Online Leaders Meeting (OLM)**

  1. After your Leadership Application has been submitted, you may now immediately make your OLM selection
  2. Select ‘Request an Online Leaders Meeting’ after your Leadership Application is completed/updated
  3. Filter OLMs; the most optimal search to find your OLM is to leave all Filters as the default and type your Online Trainer’s (OT’s) name into the Keyword search
  4. Select the blue ‘Join’ button corresponding to your OLM
  5. Select ‘Request to Join’ to confirm your selection
  6. The OT will then review your application and contact you soon with further instructions on next steps


Important! These instructions are only necessary if the Assistant Online Trainer (AOT) candidate is not already an Online Group Leader (OGL). If the AOT candidate is already an OGL and you have worked with your Online Area Personnel (OAP) to identify them, please reference this article for next steps: OAP/OT - Add an Assistant Online Trainer


**Important! If you leave the ‘Application & Status’ page before confirming your OLM selection, you can only get back to the OLM choices through your application. So, go back to the ‘Application & Status’ page, progress through the pages and submit again. Don’t worry! All of your information will still be there in the application.
