Internet Advancement not only saves time and paper, it also makes for more accurate records in the BSA system. By using Internet Advancement, you have a quick and easy way to enter youth advancements, awards and merit badges.
Internet Advancement allows you to enter youth advancements, awards, and merit badges and perform the following actions:
Select members from your existing roster,
Review, update, or add ranks, merit badges, and/or awards,
Access an online Review Unit Roster feature and the Unit Advancement Summary,
Print an Advancement Report with a Unit Awards Summary to assist in purchasing.
Before beginning Internet Advancement, collect all member information, including advancement records, award records, and merit badge applications with the appropriate signatures. To complete Internet Advancement, you must be connected to a printer to print the final report.
For assistance, you can consult the help for instructions on using Internet Advancement.
Remember, you still have to print out your report to bring to the Scout Shop to purchase recognition items.
