Cyberchip differs online from the book

The cyber chip text in at least the 2018 Wolf and Bear books says a parent/guardian can waive the cyber chip requirements.

Scoutbook does not have any way to mark the requirement this way. This would be important in terms of recharging as there wouldn’t be a year time period for one not earned.

If a parent waives the requirement, you have 2 options.

  1. Mark Cyber Chip complete and add a note that says the parent waived the requirement.
  2. When the rest of the ranks requirements are complete, click on Percent Completed and enter a completion date. Scoutbook does not require all underlying requirements to be marked complete to mark the overall award complete. In this case, I would add a note saying Cyber Chip was waived to the rank notes.
