Selection and Training

Commando Selection and Training Course

6 weeks

The Commando Selection and Training Course is designed as both a selection and training course. This is a very challenging and arduous course that is conducted over 6 weeks.

A large part of this course is focused on the employment of the Commando in the field operational environment. Therefore, much of the course is conducted in the field. The course also requires Commando reinforcements to participate in live-fire, field firing activities, conducted by night and day, using live ammunition, and a range of supporting weapons.

At the completion of this training, you should be proficient in the basic Commando tactics at the team and platoon level, by day and by night, in the field operational environment.

Throughout this training you will be assessed at the same standard as the other lateral in-service members wishing to serve as a Commando.

On successful completion of the Commando Selection and Training Course you will commence the Commando Initial Employment Training or "Reinforcement Cycle".
