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.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
