Internet Advancement

Your Unit can use Internet Advancement to record youth member advancements from any online location - at home or at the office. You will find it easy, convenient and accurate, becuase you enter the infomration.

Here's how it works


Internet Advancement makes it easy for unit leadership to record awards, ranks and merit badges to youth via an online process. This system is separate from Internet Rechartering, but uses a similar concept.

At any time during the year, the unit advancement processor from each active unit will be able to record advancements to youth member records. And, you'll be a ble to print a unit roster at any time. The roster is the most current information from ScoutNET and it will include the id for each adult and youth member.

Additional reports available include

  • Unit Advancement Summary - shows rank, merit badges and awards in each person's record for current members of the unit.
  • Advancement Report - list each youth member that has new ranks, merit badges and awards. This is the official unit Advancement Report to be signed and submitted to the office.
  • Unit Awards Summary - list the number of new ranks, merit badges and awards by name as a shopping list.
  • Advancement Update Summary - list any ranks, merit badges and awards that were already in the member record and were updated online.

The Council will provide each unit with a unit ID along with your recharter papers. The unit will assign an adult to record the advancements. Ranks must be recorded based oin program identification and in the correct rank and date sequence. Only the Eagle Scout rank cannot be awarded with this process. Award entered will not include nominated awards, such as those for meritorious action and award controlled by other organizations even if approved for uniform wear. AS BSA policies for tank entry are enforced, what units enter will meet these requirements.
