Hi team, so new achievements requirements are being rolled out by BPSA-US for Otter badges, we got word that they’ve made the changes official and have approved them. The badges are not changing but the requirements to earn them are.
Because it will probably take some time before all the groups move over to the new requirements (and in some cases where scouts have already started working toward badges), there will need to be some timeframe where both old and new requirements can be recorded in the system. I would propose setting up a whole new badge structure with the new requirements (where, for example, the new version might be called “Helping Badge (Red Paw), New Version”). This will allow tracking of both old and new badges as well as giving leaders a choice as to when they phase over to the new requirements.
I can’t upload to the message, so will link the BPSA-US Field Book here.
If you need the requirements formatted a specific way to make importing more easy, please let me know.
