CO Introduction

From the Commanding Officer,

"We strive for excellence in delivery of training and expect no less back from our trainees in their efforts. AUR will enhance the Land Army's capability by providing well trained soldiers who are prepared for their duties and roles no matter where or under what circumstances they are called to perform them.

In particular, we expect of our leaders in training, that is, our Officer Cadets, the highest displays of professionalism and selfless sacrifice in the pursuit of becoming an Officer in the Australian Army. As a Officer Cadet you will be expected to behave in a manner which brings honour to the Army and the respect of your peers and members of the public. "Almost" is not good enough."
