Message From The Commandantreflection of soldier

On behalf of the staff of the Army Recruit Training Centre I would like to welcome you to our website.

The Army Recruit Training Centre (ARTC), the 'Home of the Soldier' is part of the Kapooka Military Area (KMA), located in Wagga Wagga, NSW.

The purpose of ARTC is to focus on the delivery of recruit training and produce the highest quality soldiers for the Australian Army. This is a very important task, which requires the highest standards of professionalism and commitment from our staff.

The aims of this website are to provide you with additional information on how the Army Recruit Training Centre operates and what to expect as a potential recruit into the Australian Army.

In addition the website aims to give all potential recruits knowledge of the standards required by ARTC and how you can meet these standards before enlistment.

For those of you who wish to join the Australian Army and become a recruit at ARTC your time here will be both demanding and rewarding. It is important that you prepare yourself both physically and mentally for a fantastic new career in the Army.


Colonel S.L. Wilkie
Commandant ARTC
