Defence and Industry Study Course sponsorship

Give your business an advantage and gain insight into doing business with the Australian Defence Force through the Defence and Industry Study Course (DISC).

This course provides you with:

  • learning firsthand how the Australian Defence Force operates
  • gaining an understanding of Defence requirements
  • networks with other defence, industry and government participants
  • identifying ways that your business could support defence.

The Defence and Industry Study Course is a prestigious national program run by the Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group (CASG).

To find out more, go to the Australian Government's Department of Defence website.

The course is a part time course that requires approximately 24 days covering four, one-week modules over a seven month period.

Each year, the Northern Territory (NT) Government and the Australian Industry and Defence Network NT sponsor one NT business to attend this course, covering half the course fee.

If you would like to get the competitive edge that could help your company to do business with Defence, then the Defence and Industry Study Course could be for you.


Sponsorship is subject to acceptance into the course by CASG.

A separate Defence and Industry Study Course application will need to be lodged with CASG once you have been advised that you are the successful candidate for sponsorship onto the course.

For more information about sponsorship to attend the course, contact DefenceNT by calling 08 8999 5108 or emailing
