The Council is excited to offer Online Advancement to your unit. This new method for recording advancements is easier and more efficient because you'll be entering the information yourself. This ensures that your units information will be correct, and you can do it from your home or office, anytime that it's convenient for you. Use Internet Advancement for the following:
- Add rank, merit badges and awards
- Update information on existing advancements (except the rank of Eagle Scout)
How Internet Advancement Works
The Coastal Empire Council will provide each unit with a unit ID, and the unit will select and assign an adult to record most youth advancements from that unit. Information input on Ranks will be recorded based on program identification and can only be entered in the correct rank and date sequence.
Reports available on BSA Internet Advancement System:
Your local unit advancement processor will be able to print a unit roster at any time. This unit roster will contain the most current information from ScoutNET, including the membership ID for each adult and youth member.
