    Re: ADF Gap Year

    singleton is where the infantry training is held, although its suppose to be crammed so they're doing iet's at the battalions. i reckon Brissy would be the best too, it would have a better lifestyle than townsville etc.

    Re: ADF Gap Year

    yay adf gap year!

    i just had my YOU day and my first choice is for the navy..it seems pretty spectacular.... =D

    kinda freaking out about all the forms and stuff i have to do for assessment day though...but it wil al be worth it i think. i've been wanting to do the gap year ever since i heard about it last year.

    its got to be pretty scary though, right?

    Re: ADF Gap Year

    well scared and psyched do go well together.

    for those who are interested in going ADF but not decided i definitely recommend not putting the gap year off till your second year out of HSC.

    maybe ill see you at Cerberus melchen

    Re: ADF Gap Year

    Yeah if you're signing up for the ADF be prepared to suck up a lot of bullshit and a long waiting period. It usually takes 6-12 months from when you call 13 19 01 to when you swear the oath and get signed in. If you're going for Army, expect to wait 2 - 6 months to get to training. The waiting for training is less for Navy and (ch)Air Force

    Burn that fucker!

    They're different. If you enter as a soldier you pick what you want to do at kapooka.

    Re: ADF Gap Year

    how did we all go in the aptitude test?
    i think i went alright judging by the list of job opportunities i was given...

    heaps of people i know who did the YOU session found out they were colour-blind from one of the tests.

    i want to do army for the gap year because it pays the best. although, i really want to be a logistics officer in the air force. i think i need adv. maths though...

    I think I got all job options. Sucks how they don't tell you what your mark was though. Maybe you only need to get 40% to get every job.
    Who knows.

    Re: ADF Gap Year

    Nugget, the pay difference isn't that significant is it?
    Math isn't a prerequisite for the Air Force logistics GAP yr though? on Defencejobs website i cant find anything about it being a prerequisite for full time either.. not sure how accurate it is though.
    edit- so what i was getting at is that if you do 'really' want to do air force go find out if you can do it!

    Re: ADF Gap Year

    Nothing new on that link, the salary differences are not large.
    However the 12 months officer training you receive on the Air Force GAP year IS significant if that's where your career is..

    Re: ADF Gap Year

    Does anyone know how much we have to pay for accomodation? I know it's subsidised, but they could only subsidise 10%?

    Re: ADF Gap Year

    I remember reading somewhere that it is from about $100 to $200 depending on the level of accomodation.
    That includes food and living.

    Re: ADF Gap Year

    Yeah I suppose that sounds alright... It's not like you pay tax on the money you make, so i guess with the subsidised cost of acommodation, it evens it out a bit.

    Are you talking about full time? Cos you still have to pay tax.
