About Training
Training Courses


Scouts Australia delivers training on a wide range of topics to help our Rovers, Venturers and Leaders to deliver our programs safely and effectively. Our Adult Training & Development team works to make sure that training works for our members.

Where can I get Help?

As always, the first place to find help with anything Rover-related is your Crew Leader, Rover Advisor and Region Representative. They will either be able to answer your questions, or put you in touch with someone who can – the QBRC Training Officer or Scouts QLD Training Support Team.

You can also email the QBRC Training Officer at training@qldrovers.org.au.
