Defence recruitment plays podcasts

Look before you sign up

One week after launching its online gaming portal, the Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA) has a new media Web site hosting video podcasts of the first six weeks of its military training program.

The Web video series, title The First Six Weeks, follows a division of new recruits from their first day at ADFA through to their commencement parade at the end of initial training.

The series includes diary style commentary to give prospective candidates a better idea of what happens when they join ADFA.

Brigadier Brian Dawson said the program is unscripted and follows midshipmen and officer cadets as they complete each activity during year one familiarization training.

"The series includes 20 video podcasts which will give school students, and their parents, an opportunity to see what ADFA is really like," Dawson said.

"Year one familiarization training was selected as a focal point because in a short period it touches on the range of training activities and outcomes that midshipmen and officer cadets will achieve during their three-year program."

Activities include learning to march, assembling, loading and firing military weapons, cleaning, ironing and washing, physical and adventure training, the high ropes course, and high-speed water insertions.

The First Six Weeks video podcast is available online at www.defencejobs.gov.au/FirstSixWeeks.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
