Air Power Trainer's Course


The Air Power Trainers’ Course (APTC) is designed for PMET air power instructors from No.1 Recruit Training Unit, Officer Training School and School of Post Graduate Studies. However, APDC would be interested in conducting an APTC for other units/organisations should we be approached.

The APTC refreshes air power knowledge by updating and enhancing the understanding of air power, covering the following topics:

  • Doctrine
  • Strategy
  • History
  • Capability
  • Space
  • Future and
  • Professional mastery

Conducted at the APDC, or HMAS Harman, in Canberra. APTC consists of three and a half days of classroom instruction in the form of guided discussion and theory presentations delivered by Air Force SMEs, and a guided tour of the Australian War Memorial.
