Venturers Courses and Visits

Courses and Visits

Scouts Victoria run youth courses for Venturers to learn skills in particular activity areas throughout the year. Apart from being a valuable learning experience, they are also a great way for Venturers to meet other Venturers from around the state.

Tips: registering, confirming and paying for the Online Training Registration System 
1. To register, you will be asked for your email. It is likely that the email address stored in the system is not the Venturer’s email address, but the parent’s. If you have any difficulty registering, or the online registration system says; You are not eligible or We cannot verify your information, do not hesitate to ring (03) 8543 9829 for assistance and your current email address can be added to the system so you can register.
2. The current payment system is that the invoice for the course is added to the Workflow for your Group Leader. It is recommended that you ask the Group Leader to forward the invoice to you, and then payment options are listed on the invoice.
To pay by credit card, call the State Training Office (03) 8543 9829 to process your payment and to enrol in the course.
3. Once you have registered for the course, an email will automatically be sent to the email address. You must click on the link in the email to CONFIRM you are attending the course, to complete your registration.
4.If you are not 15, the system will consider you a scout and you will not be able to register, if so ring 85439829 during business hours for assistance.
