Visit - RAAF Base Wagga – School of Technical Training 24 June 2016
The Tribunal visited the School of Technical Training (STT) at RAAF Base Wagga as part of their induction to ADF training facilities.
The Tribunal were briefed on the roles and responsibilities of the STT by the Commanding Officer and gained an understanding of both the training conducted at the STT and the military training requirements in a tri-Service environment.
The Tribunal met with instructional staff from the Air Force and contractors as well as with trainees undertaking specialised training as aircraft technicians, avionics technicians, aircraft life support fitters and aircraft structural fitters. These discussions allowed the Tribunal to appreciate the elements and the intensity of training as well as the skills gained on graduation.
