Council General - Internet Advancement or ScoutBook Posted Aug. 14, 2015
Units are required to post scouting advancements and awards at a minimum of quarterly each year. There are two applications that interface with the local council's database to do this, Internet Advancement or ScoutBook.

Internet Advancement is free to all units, it's simple to use, and very basic for posting advancements and awards earned. Internet Advancement can be accessed from Online Tools on our Home Page. Take a look at the simple instructions for using Internet Advancement under More Info just below, then give us a call for your Unit Id Number to get started!

ScoutBook is a new application that is offered by the National BSA that units can purchase yearly. ScoutBook offers a more extensive record keeping application for all units to use as their primary source for records. Unit Leaders, Scouts, and Parents can access this app for a quick look to see the status on a Rank, a Merit Badge, etc. Units will approve who has access to update and post records for scouts. ScoutBook can be accessed from Online Tools on our Home Page.
