Training and Education

Academic, operational, and resilience training provision to enhance and upskill personnel, and to achieve improved results in mission critical and other operational areas.

Serco provides accredited training programs to defence, paramilitary, and national security organisations that support operational readiness and the attainment of nationally recognised qualifications.

We are a national military training and education provider, delivering tailored and integrated programs that prepare senior military leaders through to front-line personnel for the most demanding scenarios they will face.

As a leading Registered Training Organisation for defence environments, we understand the specific and technical complexities of training and service delivery within the sector.

We provide cost effective training, education, and learning management solutions that meet the unique needs of military operations, utilising immersive and simulation technology to replicate real-life situations.

We provide fully accredited training to Royal Australian Navy personnel, delivering courses that support the attainment of nationally recognised qualifications. Our training satisfies AMSA and National Marine Safety Committee standards, and courses involving offshore work meet Standards of Training, Certification, and Watchkeeping (STCW).

In addition to delivering vessel operations, maintenance, and navigation training to Navy personnel, we support sea familiarisation recruit training, boarding party training, the RAN’s New Entry Officer Course (NEOC), submarine rescue, and mine warfare training.
