Two submariner Warrant Officers have been given the opportunity to progress into the commission ranks as part of the Royal Australian Navy’s Associate Engineers Direct Entry (AEDE) scheme. 

Part of a recent initiative to provide a significant opportunity for technical category senior sailors to advance their careers, the AEDE scheme draws on the experience and technical mastery already achieved by the members, and allows them to further contribute to Navy in their chosen field.

With 27 years of Navy experience – predominantly in submarines, Warrant Officer Marine Technician Brett South is looking forward to his commissioning, achieving the next goal in his career and also getting back to sea as a Marine Engineer Officer Submariner (ME SM).

Warrant Officer Marine Technician Mark Layton is also looking forward to the next stage of his naval career, enabling him to meet new and different challenges and further advance in what already has been an exciting and diverse career.

Collins Lifecycle Engineering Officer, Commander Matthew Butcher, congratulated the new engineering officers on behalf of the submarine enterprise for achieving a significant and well-earned milestone.

"The promotion from Warrant Officer to Lieutenant demonstrates an attractive alternative career path for senior sailors that enables them to continue with a valuable and rewarding career within Navy," CMDR Butcher said. 

The AEDE scheme is just one of the opportunities Navy personnel have to advance their chosen careers within the fleet – helping Navy to maintain both platforms and personnel strengths, enabling the force to meet its responsibilities and obligations as part of the Australian Defence Force.
