Further information about Officer Selection Board Preparation Course:


The Officer Selection Board will likely be the hardest and most competitive interview process you will experience in your life. It is a process where the most prepared applicants shine and the less prepared applicants get screened out. Just like any interview your chance of getting recommended increases dramatically through preparation. We have been conducting our face to face OSB preparation course for over three years now and its provides you with just that. Our one day training course focuses on the most important components that are assessed during the Officer Selections Board and teaches you how to present these qualities, even when under an immense amount of pressure. This training course is run with a one instructor to one student ratio to provide you with the best possible feedback and attention during the training.

Our E-book for Officers (or Pilots) provides you with an introduction to the questions you will be asked during the interviews (as well as a consolidated resource of all of the knowledge you need to learn). This training course is where you learn HOW to apply the techniques in practice, how to do it under pressure and gives us a chance to instruct you on how to improve your answers that are not demonstrating the qualities they are looking for. You will also receive extensive training for the number of Group activities you will have to complete during your Officer Selection Board. We will show you how to shine as a leader among your group of competitive candidates.

Additional Testing Day and OSB Preparation Course:

“The selection process for a future officer and potential pilot can be extremely lengthy and demanding. I did not achieve the required pass mark on my first YOU Session back at the end of year 11 and was left in a state of uncertainty and doubt. I stumbled across ADF mentors closing in on my additional testing, and purchased ‘The Book’. I immediately realised the depth of knowledge and experience in the book and purchased the ‘Additional Testing Day Preparation Course’. I had exactly one week before my pilot specific additional testing to complete the internet based course. By the third day of practice, I was only half way through the detailed course and already felt extremely confident in my mental math abilities. On the day of testing, I was able to complete each test in under the time allowed and had time to re check my answers, which in the case is usually extremely rare.

Reading through ‘The Book’ for pilots and completing a number of phone calls with Nick, helped me ease through the assessment day with confidence in my knowledge. Each question presented by the officer on the day was unbelievably similar to the practice questions in the back of ‘The Book’.

I also took the time to complete the ‘OSB training course’. The one day course was absolutely necessary in making sure I was 100% prepared for the 2 strenuous weeks at flight screening and OSB. The course allowed me to see visible change in my interview body language, effective question answering ability, controlled verbal pace and extremely beneficial tips on how to steer away from “red flag questions”. Nick also spent hours mentoring me on how to stand out,  and become an effective leader in the group activities conducted on the first day of Officer Selection Board. During my actual group activities at the OSB, I found it extremely easy to employ the strategies and procedures that Nick had taught me, to stand out, and to magnify my officer potential.

I was recommended by the Officer Selection Board for a direct entry pilot. I was told I was quite high in the selection pool and to sit tight for an offer. After a month of waiting I recieved an offer and am leaving for Initial Officers Course in 4 weeks. I cannot thank Nick enough for his extremely detailed, structured and user friendly courses. Without completing each ADF Mentors course for the relevant selection stage, I would have been going in blind and can see now that I most likely would not of been offered a position.

If you want a serious chance at obtaining your dream career in the Defence Force, I highly recommend any of the ADF mentors training courses”

OSB Preparation Course:

“I am a Nursing student and I decided to apply for the Undergraduate Scholarship program through ARMY. I spent countless hours trying to find information that might help my assessment day and of course my OSB but didn’t find anything of value. I came across ADFmentors and decided to invest in The Officers Book to see what it was all about. After reading only a few pages I was really impressed with the wealth of knowledge that The Book contained and knew that I wanted to jump on to the OSB preparation course.

Nick took the time to go through a mock one hour interview before my assessment day and although it was very confronting, it also put me one step ahead of most of the candidates that didn’t take the time to prepare. Upon going in to my assessment day it was obvious that a lot of the candidates hadn’t taken the time to thoroughly research their roles and it showed. I can honestly say that if I had not come across ‘The Book’ then I would have been unsure about my performance on the day but because of the knowledge it gave me, I was confident, calm and ready!

I attended a two day OSB course with Nick and at first I was very nervous.  Nick encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone with speeches, group scenarios, essays and mock interviews. I didn’t realise at the time but practising helped my nerves on the day and I was confident when I went in to my OSB that I had the knowledge and skills I needed and I was calm.

At the end of my OSB I was given a strong recommendation and I know that without Nick’s guidance and knowledge the day might have gone a little different. Thank you for all your help.”

You Session, Additional Testing Day and OSB Preparation Course:

“Hi Guys,

Great news, I have been recommended for direct entry pilot. I was told that my position in the pool is quite high, so I am absolutely stoked.

I cannot thank you enough for the time you spent mentoring me, your presentations, the book and your OSB course were pivotal in my success at flight screening. I walked into the group activities and interview with confidence and performed really well. Absolutely stoked that the board could see I was suitable for a direct entry position.”

Alex – RAAF Dircet Entry Pilot (Age: 19)


OSB Preparation Course:

“I knew if I wanted to achieve my dream of becoming an Officer in the Australian Army, I needed to be ahead of all the other candidates applying for the Royal Military College. ADF mentors provided me with the skills and knowledge to do exactly that. I highly recommend the OSB preparation course as it provided me with valuable resources such as “The Book” and feedback and training on how to not only improve my interview and public speaking skills, but stand out at my Officer Selection Board. Before I started I couldn’t do an impromptu oral presentation to save my life, but with the encouragement, training and feedback from Nick I was able to not only confidently do an impromptu oral presentation, but get a high recommendation at my Officer Selection Board.

If a career in the Australian Defence Force is your dream, then I highly recommend ADF mentors to help you make this dream a reality!

Thank you ADFmentors!”

Rebecca – ARMY GSO Officer


OSB Preparation Course:

“If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably spent days/weeks trawling through websites trying to find anything that will give you an edge to becoming an officer in the ADF. Let me save you the thousands of dollars and time I wasted attending other courses and programs that claim to prepare you for the OSB. ADF Mentors is the most comprehensive, specialised and accurate course there is. I was a bit hesitant at first (as you may well be), however, after the first phone call with Nick and my subsequent purchase of ‘The Book’, most of my fears were allayed.

I sat in my Assessment Day interview worrying about whether or not the content in ‘The Book’ was accurate enough and if I would be recommended. It took about 2 minutes of questioning before I realised that I knew leaps and bounds more than any other applicant and I watched as the Navy interviewer grinned, closed the clipboard, put his pen down and said “we both know you know this position like the back of your hand and that I’m going to recommend you.”, we then spent the following 15 minutes just talking about our dogs, jobs, etc.

I was blown away at how easy the interview was once I had read, learnt and practiced what was in ‘The Book’. At this point, I instantly booked in for the OSB Preparation course. At every stage throughout the process, Nick would consistently call to give advice, provide feedback and find out how things went. The course was worth every dollar and out of the 6 candidates on the day, I was the only one who received no feedback for improvement from the board president and when I was asked “how do you think you went?”, I confidently answered “I’ve done a lot of study and preparation for this, so I’m confident I did well”, to which he responded “well you’re absolutely right”. I was then recommended and received a letter of offer 1 month later.

If you still have doubts about this course, feel free to ask Nick to get you in touch with me and I’m more than happy to provide a verbal reference.

I cannot thank Nick and ADF Mentors enough for their assistance. Having under performed at school to the point where my scores did not meet the cut off to even apply for the ADF, I’m now off to Officers’ Training School for my dream career as an Air Combat Officer because of ADF Mentors.”

You Session Preparation Package and OSB Preparation Course:

“In my experience the best way to prepare for the aptitude tests and interviews that you’ll face as an applicant to the ADF is by completing the ADFMentor’s preparation material.

Most of the questions in the aptitude tests will be different to what you’ve experienced at school (and beyond) and they become additionally challenging when the tight time requirements are applied. Through the type of practice that the ADFMentors program provides, you get used to tackling those problems under the confined time constraints. Knowing which questions you’re good at, and which ones you should skip; being used to the feeling of the clock counting down; and knowing a number of important techniques makes all the difference in the world to your result.

When it comes to the interviews the ADFMentors approach is extremely useful. The difference between them and others is that they take the time to get to know you. So when you’re practicing answering questions they are your answers, not some generic coached response. The practice interviews that I had with Nick meant that on the day I was able to be more confident in my responses, knowing that I had practiced the answers that I wanted to give, and knew what I wanted to say.

Finally, in all my dealings with him Nick went far beyond what was required. He spent a lot longer with me than he had to, and he was incredibly flexible. All in all, I’d highly recommend ADFMentors for all ADF applicants.”

You Session Preparation Package and OSB Preparation Course:

“When first applying for the Australian Defence Force I had little knowledge regarding the recruitment process and what was expected of me. Luckily I came across ADF Mentors because if I didn’t I would have failed my YOU Session and would not be where I am today. It is so important to make a long-lasting positive impression when interacting with ADF members and this training prepares you for all stages of the recruitment process – from the YOU session all the way through to Officer Selection Board if you are intending to enter as a commissioned officer.

In regards to the YOU Session, the aptitude testing is quite difficult as there are time constraints and you are activating skills you do not regularly use. ADF Mentors YOU Session training package is excellent – it teaches and allows you to practice all of the skills that will be tested on the day. Furthermore, Nick (the head mentor) provides ongoing assistance and ensures you are ready before attending your session.

The OSB training package is just as beneficial and again replicates the skills and knowledge you need before attending your OSB. While it is one thing to partake in independent research, this package gets you to practice and refine skills you do not always use in everyday situations. Thus, come your actual OSB day; you are calm, composed and very prepared.

I am now at the end of the recruiting process and have received a strong recommendation. This is due to a lot of hard work, and the support of Nick and the ADF Mentors team. Without them, I would have wasted a lot of time researching areas I did not need to. Moreover, without their help I would have gone into each stage unaware of many key elements that would have led to my failure. Finally, without their help, I would have not been able to receive a high recommendation.

If you are serious about a career with the ADF, I would most certainly recommend ADF Mentors. Not only have they taught me a lot and prepared me for each stage of the recruitment process, they also managed to make it a fun experience. The ADF Mentors team are professional, have a lot of knowledge and are an essential part to successfully moving through the recruitment process.”

Natalie – ARMY Education Officer


Aptitude Preparation Packages and OSB Preparation Course:

“Before I started my recruitment process to become a Defence Force Pilot I knew that I wanted to achieve the highest standard that I possibly could and give myself the best chance of receiving a high recommendation and subsequent job offer. So I enlisted the best help in the business. ADFmentors, have helped me through every stage of the recruitment process (the You Session, Additional Testing Day, Assessment Day and the Officer Selection Board) allowing me to have the upmost confidence in my abilities to perform in the aptitude testing and interviews. From my YOU session right up until Flight Screening, ADFmentors have been there to guide and train me through the specifics of each stage, with inside knowledge to help me shine and present myself as a high caliber candidate. I would like to personally thank Nick for all his help throughout the process, for all ways being available when I had a question or even just to talk me through some pre interview jitters. I have just received a recommendation from OSB and am now awaiting my letter of offer to start the training process to become a Fast Jet Pilot.”

Jeff – RAAF Fast Jet Pilot


OSB Preparation Course:

“Before attending my Assessment Day, I downloaded the ADF Mentors ‘The Book –For Pilots’. I found it was the most comprehensive book available – specific to becoming a military aviator. I eventually booked an Officer Selection Board Preparation course as I wanted to provide myself with the best chance of receiving a high recommendation. The experience and training provided by Ray and the ADFMentors team was exceptional and gave me a huge advantage over the other candidates. Thanks to their guidance over the course, I received a High Recommendation from the Officer Selection Board and I’m now awaiting a Letter of Offer. If anyone is interesting in pursuing a career as a military aviator in the Australian Defence Force, I strongly recommend taking ‘The Book’ and these courses to give yourself the best chance possible of achieving your dream.”

Peter – RAAF Fast Jet Pilot


OSB Preparation Course:

“I don’t usually write testimonials, however I believe ADFMentors deserves mine. Nick my mentor, does exactly what he claims. If you are serious about preparing yourself in the best light to face flight screening, doing a one on one course with ADFMentors will do just that. After two days with Nick, my interview answering was crisp, confident and genuine. By replicating some of the uncomfortable situations expected at OSB, Nick provided a guided and safe way to build my confidence. Going in with the right attitude and willingness to learn will help a lot. When I finished the course, I felt I could take on OSB the very next day, but of course I didn’t have to, my preparation course had been scheduled to allow me more time to prepare. I didn’t want to scrape through Flight Screening, I wanted to leave no doubts.  After applying what I learned in the group activities and the OSB interview I received a high recommendation and moving on from this a letter of offer from the RAAF for a Pilot position. I now truly have a chance of achieving my dream of becoming a Fast Jet Pilot and an Officer, I highly recommend this course to anyone that wants to achieve similar success in the ADF.”
