Defence Force Cadets
The Australian Navy Cadets (ANC), Australian Army Cadets (AAC) and Australian Air Force Cadets (AAFC) are community based youth development organisations. You are eligible to serve as a cadet from the age of 12 ½ years (Navy) and 13 years (Army and Air Force) up until your 20th birthday. As a cadet you learn leadership, team building and survival skills, at the same time experiencing what life is like in the Navy, Army or Air Force.
What to expect?
As a cadet you will be offered challenging and inspiring experiences whilst learning valuable life and work skills. You will make new friends, be part of a team, learn to take responsibility, and gain leadership skills. You get to visit military bases, tour ships, planes, tanks and other military equipment. You’ll be issued with a service uniform and taught drill, military communications, first aid, navigation and safe weapons handling and most of all have a lot of fun.
