Skype OSB Preparation Course
The Skype OSB Preparation Course is 3.5 hours in length featuring a 2.5 hour Skype course plus a 1 hour follow up Skype call.
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 OSB, doing a one on one course with ADFMentors will do just that. After training 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 OSB, 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 am now on the road to become a Fast Jet Pilot, I highly recommend this course to anyone that wants to achieve similar success in the ADF.

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 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.

The OSB interviews will likely be the hardest and most competitive interviews 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 a high recommended increases through preparation. The Skype OSB preparation course is ideal for those candidates who can’t travel to our Face to Face OSB Preparation Course.
The Skype OSB Preparation Course is focused on preparing you for the OSB process by giving you a chance to experience the activities before the actual day. This gives us 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 success. The training course is run with a one instructor to one student ratio over Skype 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 desired qualities.
