THE Junior Warfare Application
Course (JWAC) is seeking junior
officer mentors for its new train-
ees to provide guidance and men-
toring during their JWAC training
and pre-specialist phases.
CMDR Chris Smith, Director
N avy Warfare Professional
Requirements, said the JWAC men-
toring scheme had always been an
important part of the training con-
"It has become even more
important with the advent of direct-
ed specialisation in 2009," he said.
"To reflect the increased focus
on the scheme we are making some
changes to the way trainees access
"From January 2012 we will
have a website set up where JWACs
will be able to access mentors by
leveraging video and social media."
CMDR Smith said all LEUT
and pre-charge LCDR maritime
warfare officers who were special-
ised or hold an ADQUAL quali-
fication were invited to volunteer
as mentors if they were of good
character, had the time to volunteer,
were genuinely interested in engag-
ing junior officers and had been
recommended for representational
duties on their most recent NOPAR.
"Mentoring is now an important
part of the leadership training for all
ranks; officers gain exposure to it
during JOLC," CDMR Smith said.
"We are keen to make good use
of this training through our JWAC
Call for JWAC mentors
mentors in 2012, and we will be
able to provide some mentoring
training opportunities if necessary."
Volunteers are requested to email a
biography (about one page) to jwac.
GUIDANCE: Interested in pass-
ing on your knowledge to junior
warfare officers? Become a
JWAC mentor and help young
officers, like these pictured on
the bridge simulator at HMAS
Watson, become better leaders.
