Joining the Australian Air Force, Army, or Navy, Can Be Difficult Without Preparation

Because of the high level of competition and standards needed to join the Australian Defence Force (ADF), the initial examination is intentionally difficult. Each applicant must work hard to prepare and perform at their best and exceed their competition. Joining the Australian Air Force (or any other branch of the ADF) requires everyone to be at the top of their game in their physical, emotional, and psychological aspects.

The ADF tests all applicants before joining the Australian Army. They examine their physical condition, their mental capacities, and their psychological status, and they complete this process through interviews, presentations, and group dynamics. Everyone interested in joining the Australian Defence Force must display peak performance, confidence, and uniqueness.

Do not fear if the testing process sounds intimidating. Defence Ready, our all-in-one study system, is available to help you prepare for every aspect of initial ADF exams no matter which position you want. Joining the Australian Navy, Army, or Air Force and reaching either general, officer, or pilot entry streams can be attained by starting with our free aptitude test and studying with our program.
