Australian Defence College


Mastery of the profession of arms is a critical warfighting edge for the Australian Defence Force. The Australian Defence College advocates for professional mastery to nurture the desire of our people to achieve professional excellence. This is achieved through residential courses, distributed learning, research, seminars, professional journals and the contribution to the global online Professional Military Education community.

The Australian Defence College has a pivotal role in contributing to building the Australian Defence Force future force. It achieves this by delivering world-class joint professional education and joint individual training that is future focused, preparing military leaders intellectually for future digital age warfare.

The Australian Defence College combines the Australian War College, the Australian Defence Force Training Centre and the Australian Defence Force Academy and supporting Centres of Excellence. Through these institutions and its other activities, the Australian Defence College promotes learning and growth of leaders and managers who have professional interest in national and international defence and security issues, be they military or civilian, from Australia or overseas.
