Internet Advancement

Launch BSA Internet Advancement

Internet Advancement allows Unit leaders to record their youth member advancements online. You will find this method to be easy, convenient, and accurate because you enter the information, and it will save you the effort of hand writing advancements onto a three-part carbon form. Use Internet Advancement for adding ranks, merit badges and awards, and to update information on existing advancements (except the Eagle Scout rank).

How it Works

Each unit selects one person who will have the log in information and be authorized to do advancement reporting for the unit. The Unit ID for Internet Advancement will be mailed to your Committee Chair (Note: the Unit ID is not the same as your Pack, Troop, or Crew number).

Things You Need to be Prepared

  • Unit ID # and Password (if you forget your credentials, we can help)
  • Advancement Records - To enter in once you get into the system.
  • Printer Access - So that you can print your Advancement Update Summary.
  • System Requirements - Internet Explorer 5.5 or higher, 56K or faster Internet connection and Adobe Acrobat Reader
