Training – Leadership Skills
Basic Rover Training
The Basic Rover Course explains all about how the Rover Section operates, and shows you the pathway to being the best Rover you can.
During the course, you will learn various skills that can be used to ensure your Crew, Region, or Event Committee, is running the best it can. Alongside the other Rovers on your Course, you will learn about Rovering through various practical and discussion workshops, in an engaging workspace rather than sitting through a lecture. Some activities will involve you moving outside to do something practical like plan an activity.
The content covered in this course is essential to being a great Rover Leader. So much so, it is now a requirement for anyone wishing to be a Region Rep, QBRC Officer, Event Chair, needs to do this course. We highly recommend that Crew Leaders also undertake this Training. The course really does cover “the basics” of being a Rover, and everyone should strive to complete it during their first few years in Rovers.

Rover Basic is reviewed regularly to ensure it remains a fun, engaging, and beneficial course to Rovers in QLD. Have a look at what some Rovers who have already completed the course have said:
Fun, informative and worthwhile are three words to describe the rover basic and advanced training courses which I completed in 2018. Both of these courses offered me the opportunity to revise already gained knowledge and provided me with additional knowledge including event planning and risk assessment writing which will benefit me greatly when taking on future leadership positions in rover scouting events at a crew, district, regional and a state level. It is very worthwhile to complete and to top it all off you get to worth with like minded fun people!
