Rank Advancements

BSA National has changed Ranks and Requirements for Ranks!  Scout is now a rank, not just a badge, and requirements for other ranks have changed.  The documents below help explain the changes.
2016BoyScoutsRequirements compares the old and new requirements in a handy, if lengthy, chart.
2016BoyScoutsRequirementsFAQs is Frequently Asked Questions about the new rank requirements.
524-012_BS_Requiremments_Insert is a printable insert to tuck into the back of your Scout Handbook.
Transitioning_New_Requirements is the schedule for when the new requirements take effect.  (Hint:  all advancement after January 1, 2017, is under the new requirements.)
