    • 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. 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.

    • I am a Nursing student and I decided to apply for the Undergraduate Scholarship program through Army. I came across ADFmentors and decided to invest in ‘The Book – for Officers’ 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!

    • 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 four years now and you will receive training that put you in the top echelon of candidates. This 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. 

      The OSB Preparation Course gives you a chance to experience the activities before the actual day. This provides the opportunity to identify your weak spots, provide experienced feedback and direction, refine your answers, remove potential ‘deal breakers’ and dramatically improve your chance of successThe training course is run face to face with a one instructor to one student ratio to provide you with the highest degree of 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 desired qualities.
