About the EES program
EES is fun and stimulating, focusing on developing personal
skills - all within an Australian Defence Force environment.
The program ranges from a half-day to a 3-day exercise and is
normally held on weekends.
We hold a briefing session on safety and general knowledge you
need for EES before we begin the program.
A typical program combines a range of activities including:
- leadership, confidence and initiative tests
- team building exercises
- navigation theory and practice
- bush craft
- quick decision exercises
- abseiling and rappelling exercises
- visits to technical training facilities.
