The NEW rank requirements are official as of Jan. 1, 2016.  Scouts
who joined the Boy Scouts of America on or after Jan. 1, 2016 MUST follow
the rank requirements as printed in the new Boy Scout Handbook or in the current
year’s Boy Scout Requirements book.
Scouts who joined the BSA prior to Jan. 1, 2016:
• Who are working on the Tenderfoot through First Class ranks MAY
continue to follow the old requirements, but MUST convert to the current
requirements upon attaining First Class.
• Who have completed the First Class rank MAY complete the rank they are
currently working on in the old requirements, but MUST convert to the
current requirements for subsequent ranks.
Beginning Jan. 1, 2017, all Scouts MUST use the current requirements
regardless of rank.
