Our people are highly trained. We need them to master their profession and to know how apply those skills as part of a team, operating in complex and uncertain environments.
A new recruit's training starts when they join the Defence Force. They are immersed in military culture, learn how to work as a team, and are familiarised with following detailed instructions. No-one works alone. As a team, recruits get used to working quickly and with urgency, in order to complete tasks. They learn basic skills like weapon handling, first aid and drill. This is all part of developing a culture of being able to perform tasks in tough situations, under the direction of a leader and in a team with people who can be relied upon.
