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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
