Guidelines for obtaining proficiency badges

  1. To achieve a Proficiency Badge, you must complete the requirements which are written down and agreed with your Adviser prior to starting the badge.
  2. The aim of the Proficiency Badge system is to allow a Scouts to develop and interst that will be challenging to that individual and to provide a range of activities in the Scout Program . Each badge includes three tasks: demonstrate/investigate; skill; and an activity.
  3. A Proficiency Badge requires at least 10 hours work or preparation (depending on the nature of the Badge) and must not take more than four months to complete.
  4. These badges are designed for you to learn a new skill or to become better at an existing skill
  5. Ideas for each Proficiency Badge are set out in the Scout Record Book.  Additional ideas for some of the badges are set out in the Scout Award Scheme book (part of the Guidelines for Scout Leaders and the Scout Awards Scheme)
  6. Proficiency Badges have only one level.  Each Proficiency Badge can only be earned once.
  7. The following other badges can be completed and worn as a Proficiency Badge: Amateur Radio Operator, Deaf Sign Language Emblem, Language Emblem, Faith Awareness
  8. For each of these badges you will need an Adviser. An Adviser is someone who has a skill in a particular hobby or interest and is able to assess you on your knowledge/skill in your chosen activity. 
    For example, if you are going for your 'Team Sports' Proficiency Badge, your team coach should be your Adviser.  Members of local cluns (collecting or sporting), teachers at school, or even local business people can all be Advisers as long as they have the expereince in the badge that you have chosen.  Your Leader may even be able to suggest someone who could help you.

You need to keep a record of each test as you pass it.
