The Australian Army Defence Force School of Signals and Box Hill Institute of TAFE have signed a two-year contract extension for the provision of communications and information systems training to the Australian Defence Force.

Chief of Army, Lieutenant General Rick Burr, said the contract will ensure that industry standard training in contemporary communications and information systems (CIS) will continue to be provided to the Royal Australian Navy, Australian Army and Royal Australian Air Force trainees.

“The Box Hill Institute team has considerable experience in contemporary CIS training and have been assisting the Defence Command Support Training Centre with the delivery of this training at the Defence Force School of Signals since 2014,” LTGEN Burr said.

“The contract extension will see CIS instructors from Box Hill Institute continue to work hand-in-hand with uniformed instructors, teaching a variety of CIS technologies and skills to trainees throughout their ADF career, ensuring they are ready now and future ready.”

The Defence Force School of Signals is the Australian Defence Force’s principal communications and information systems and electronic warfare training establishment.

The total contract since 2014 represents approximately $30 million dollars in government investment.
