What is the difference between technical and non-technical General Entry positions?
Technical General Entry positions will be taught a specialised trade or technical qualification, just like they would at a TAFE or college (for example, Vehicle Mechanics, Electricians, Carpenters etc.). To apply for all Technical jobs, students must have completed Year 10 (or equivalent) with passes in English, Mathematics and Science (with a Physics content) and one other subject. Non-Technical jobs cover a wide range of careers from healthcare to combat. All training is provided by the ADF and students normally receive civilian accreditation after a qualifying period (for example Cooks, Dental Assistants, Drivers and Storemen etc.). To apply for all Non-Technical jobs (excluding Psychological Examiner), students must have completed Year 9 (or equivalent) with passes in English and Mathematics.
