Duties & Tasks

Navy officers mainly work in the seaman, aviation, supply and engineering fields, as well as in various support specialisations.

Education and training/entrance requirements

To become a Navy officer you usually have to gain your Senior Secondary Certificate of Education with passes in English and three other tertiary-accredited subjects.

  2. you may complete a degree through the Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA);

  3. you may apply as a sponsored undergraduate; or

  4. you may apply after completing a selected range of specialist degrees.
