On 1 September 2017, members of Special Operations Command (SOCOMD) and the wider ADF gathered to mark another milestone in the ongoing development of Special Operations in Australia.
The gathering at Holsworthy Barracks, witnessed the transition of the Special Forces Training Centre (SFTC) into the Special Operations Training and Education Centre (SOTEC).
Guests included Special Operations Commander Australia (SOCAUST) Major General Adam Findlay and representatives from across SOCOMD and the wider ADF.
SOTEC’s vision statement will define its mission now and into the future. It articulates that the Centre is “to generate world-class and trusted personnel to constitute high-performance teams as a component of the National Mission Force. SOTEC will deliver pan-command individual special operations training and education to enable personnel to integrate across the operational continuum for the conduct of special operations.”
SOTEC will also establish a new detachment in Perth, as part of its implementation.
