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 the following:

  • learn firsthand how the Australian Defence Force operates
  • gain an understanding of Defence requirements
  • network with other defence, industry and government participants
  • identify 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). 

The course is a part time course that requires approximately 20 days covering three, one-week modules over a calendar year.

Each year, the Territory Government and the Australian Industry and Defence Network NT sponsor one Territory business to attend this course. The sponsorship of $5400 in 2016 covered 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 please contact DefenceNT on (08) 8999 5108 or by email
