Special tests

Special tests

In addition to ranking, young eagles may also perform special tests. Special tests deepen the young eagle’s knowledge in different fields, and the choice of specialty is each young eagle’s personal initiative and desire. Depending on the profession, special tests may be taught individually or with the participation of several members.

In total, the Young Eagles are offered 62 special tests to pass. The most common of these are hiker, shooter, medic and athlete.

If a person performing the test has a more thorough knowledge of the subject of the test than expected (acts in hobbies, acquired knowledge and skills at school or from parents or has stood out in competitions, etc.), then it is possible to award him / her the right to wear a special test mark. A young eagle that has passed a special test has the right to wear the mark of the corresponding special test on the right cuff of the uniform shirt.
