The program will provide $39 million over two years, and is now broadened to include more training providers to make the industry ‘defence ready’.

It is hoped that the announcement will broaden the defence force skillsets such as engineering, project management and logistics.

Minister for Defence Industry Melissa Price said that the eligibility changes occurred due to industry feedback.

“SADI can now support defence industry in technical and trade skills training, improved human resources practices, apprenticeship supervision, and on-the-job training,” Minister Price said.

“The Defence Teaming Centre is one industry association that is now able to use its SADI grant to provide a Diploma of Digital Technologies course to 16 participants who represent 14 different small to medium Australian defence businesses.

“This government’s support for skills training is part of our plan to develop the workforce needed to deliver on our historic $270 billion investment in Defence capability.

“A skilled workforce will help build our sovereign industrial capabilities, support innovation and grow the competitiveness of Australian industry, both here and overseas.”
