The cost for a Rover Advanced Practical course is $150, and with the refund offer provided by the State Association for those who complete their Woodbadge within 12 months of the course, your Group is a great place to turn for financial support. Rover Advanced is the level of training required for people planning to run for the role of VRC Chairman, Deputy Chair, Assistant Chair, or Training Officer.
Like all of our Rover training, this course takes advantage of the Scout eLearning system and feedback from previous courses to cut down on the boring parts of training and focus on giving you the skills and techniques you need to be a dynamic leader in the Rover section!
The May Madness Advanced Course is running at Gilwell Park, Gembrook on the weekend of May 13th and 14th. Applications close on April 28th.
You should come this weekend because it's going to be fun! We guarantee it!
