As we approach the end of 2016, it is important to note the following:
- Scouts who are working on Tenderfoot through First Class MAY continue to work on the existing requirements to reach the First Class rank prior to December 31, but MUST convert to the new requirements upon attaining First Class.
- Scouts who completed First Class prior to January 2016 MAY complete only the rank they were working on as of January 2016 using the requirements under which they started. Upon achieving that rank, they MUST convert to the new requirements for subsequent ranks.
All Boy Scouts MUST transition to the new rank requirements, regardless of rank, on January 1, 2017.
