Program Overview

Delivered across three, six-month modules, our graduates will spend their time working on site, operating on a 7-days-on, 7-days off roster.

The graduate will work on day to day operational demands, always benefiting from the tutelage of a Senior Engineer or Senior member of the Bravus or BRC team.

The on-site work is then bolstered with off-site training through our learning partner at Central Queensland University. The learning components are undertaken at either the Townsville or Rockhampton campuses.

Each module begins with a 2- or 3-day workshop, setting the scene for the module’s key areas. The graduate will attend small tutorial class sessions with a range of experiential learning activities.

Learning and development is continued during the course of the module by Central Queensland University offering online support and various online learning sessions.

Personal Development - Communication for leadership success

Module 1 lays the foundations for professional and personal growth as a valuable team member. This module is designed to allow the graduate to understand what makes them tick, so that they can work as an active and successful member of our operations. The graduate will learn to identify communication styles, manage their own day-to-day priorities, understand emotional intelligence and be a resilient member of the team.


Contemporary Leadership

Module 2 examines how a contemporary leader contributes to the evolution of our organisations. This module will evaluate the effectiveness of various leadership models, theories, frameworks, and techniques that create success to improve. These theories and practices for the graduates influence the development of strategic decisions intended to achieve sustainable business outcomes.


Future Leader - Delivering successful projects as a leader

Module 3 identifies and builds on competencies the graduate requires to become a future leader in business. The module helps the graduate gain skills to develop their work abilities and identify new ways of doing things. Thinking outside of the square is encouraged and topics of focus include teamwork, innovation, organisational agility and leadership.
