Video – Rehearsal of Concept demo

The Rehearsal of Concept (ROC) drill is an activity than many people in the Australian Army have very limited exposure to. For those approaching the All Corps Captain’s Course (ACCC), many will never have seen one conducted, and for those preparing for All Corps Majors Course (ACMC), it is quite possible the last time you saw or were involved in one, was your last career course. It is a degradable skill and while most of us might recall the general mechanics of it, we forget some of the finer detail and lack confidence in conducting one as time goes on.

Here at the Cove, we have put together a video demonstration of a ROC drill in order to refresh your memory and brush up on your skills. We recommend you aim to do thisĀ either prior to your next career course, or in between courses if you are required to participate or observe one as part of a Brigade Headquarters or similar organisation. The video is not a polished product, but you will absolutely be able to take the lessons being communicated within it, and use them to enhance your knowledge on the topic. The video covers:

  • 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.
