Good morning all,
I have been glancing over both the Venturing Rank and Award requirements noting that I have completed some of them already while a Scout. However, I was not a registered Venturer in a Crew. I have been looking into whether you can count past completions of certain requirements before the date of joining, and I have found that certifications that one has completed before joining Venturing and that overlaps counts. Does one need to be registered in a Crew in order to begin advancing?
Also, what if one were to join a Sea Scouting Ship before registering in a Crew? Can he/she work on awards and ranks for Venturing or not since the two programs split in February of 2016? I have been rather curious about this matter for quite some time now. Please enlighten me with what you know on this matter! As always, thank you for your time and guidance.
