This page provides tips and resources for a new Scout and his/her parents. Many aspects of the Scouts BSA training and advancement structure contain overlaps, topics building upon each other, and areas where "double credit" can be earned if a Scout was judicious about how he/she did things. Watch the introductory video linked below for an overview of the tool, then download the linked spreadsheet. Use these tools to simplify your journey to First Class.
CAUTION: While this tool helps indicate where economies of effort can be achieved, different opinions exist in various locations with respect to who is authorized to be the official approver and who can sign off for rank requirements and merit badges. Be sure to inquire within your troop on what your troop's policies are, and consult the BSA Guide to Advancement by following this link.
