Rehearsal of Concept demo

By The Cove May 16, 2019

Here at the Cove, we have put together a video demonstration of a Rehearsal of Concept, or ROC, drill in order to refresh your memory and allow you to brush up on your skills. We recommend you aim to do this either prior to your next career course, or in between courses if you are required to participate in or observe one as part of a formation headquarters or similar organisation. The video is not a polished product, but it does cover some critical aspects of a ROC drill, including:

  • What is a ROC drill?
  • What are the types of ROC drill?
  • ROC drill actions
  • Key responsibilities & tasks
  • Outcomes
  • Common faults
  • A brief demonstration of a ROC drill

Watch the video to refresh your understanding of the ROC dill and be sure to capture Brigade or similar ROC drills being conducted in your area and send them through to the Cove so we can share them with the wider audience.
