Navy Career Experience

LTC students recently travelled to Sydney for a unique Navy career experience aboard the HMAS Kuttabul.

Students had the chance to observe a range of different trades, including fitting and turning, air conditioning and refrigeration services, electrical, and data and communications trades.

The tour was guided by current serving members of the Defence Force who shared their experiences of serving in the Navy, and provided valuable insights into day-to-day tasks and experiences.
