The method of entry determines how you will begin your defence career. The links below will filter the content to only show the information
relevant to you.
You will be enlisted for an Initial Minimum Period of Service
(IMPS) of six years. Subsequent periods of service may be offered
subject to the requirements of the ADF and your suitability for
further service. You may request discharge at any time provided you
do not have an outstanding IMPS obligation.
Your Careers Counsellor can advise on how IMPS will relate to
your chosen occupation.
