There are important changes to the rank advancement requirements that all scouts with older handbooks must be aware of.
The Rank Requirements in this book are official as of January 1, 2010. If a Scout has started work towards a rank before that date using requirements that were current before January 1, 2010, he may complete that rank only using the old requirements. Any progress towards a rank that is begun after January 1, 2010, must use the requirements as they are presented in this handbook or in the Boy Scout Requirements Book.
