The Department of Elf Resources has three grades of elves:
Junior Elf, 3rd Class – Elves who are brand new signing up at ElfHQ.com enter the elf ranks in this class. Once they have read the Elf Code and taken the Elf Oath, they become eligible for an upgrade in class as well a new elf job. The vast majority of elves following this path are first assigned or sign up at SantaTrackers.net to become a tracker elf.
Elf, 2nd Class – All new tracker elves are assigned as 2nd Class Elves. This is an entry-level designation. While so classed an elf is expected to go through all the elf training as specified at this link. While in the class elves can move through the Elf Ranks, designated from 1 to 6 stars in their elf profile. Stars are gained in the form of points. Points are gained by activity in the Elf Community, service time as an elf, badges earned, and jobs taken in various capacities. It can take a while to rise from 2nd class to 1st class.
Elf, 1st Class – A first class designation showcases an elf’s experience and knowledge. The following is required to become a first class elf:
- You must be a verified elf.
- You must have at least 1 year of service as an elf. This requirement can be waived by an Elf Supervisor, Community Manager or the Department of Elf Resources if you apply for and take an elf job that requires 1st class status.
- You must pass a comprehensive Elf Knowledge Quiz demonstrating your mastery of Operation Merry Christmas, the Elf Code, and the rules of the Elf Community on SantaTrackers.net.
- Having an Elf Rank of 3-stars or greater is advisable.
