THE Junior Warfare Application
Course (JWAC) Mentoring Program
has given experienced maritime war-
fare officers the opportunity to transfer
their wisdom and experience to the
next generation of Navy leaders.
The mentors provide career
advice and guidance to junior officers
commencing their JWAC training,
helping them navigate new waters
and decide what will be best for their
careers and ultimately for Navy.
Director Navy Warfare
Requirements CAPT Chris Smith said
the mentoring system was a great way
of linking personal and professional
experiences to what the junior officers
were learning on course.
"The nirvana for the mentoring
program is to provide the best
information to our junior officers so
they can make a good decision about
what specialisation they want to move
into in the future," CAPT Smith said.
Mentors help to strengthen
relationships across Navy through the
development of an open, inclusive and
encouraging learning environment.
The officer in charge of JWAC,
LEUT Sally Blackmore, on HMAS

few years ahead of the junior officers
in their naval careers.
"The mentors are really not that far
ahead of these junior officers as they
join," LEUT Blackmore said.
"They've commenced their
specialisation stream and they're
not too far removed that they can't
remember what it was like to be a
young junior officer just starting
However, the mentoring program
is not solely focused on career
development. It is also designed to
support the wellbeing of personnel.
Mentor LEUT Darren McDevitt
said the mentoring program provided
crucial support to junior officers
during a challenging time in their
"Being a warfare officer is a
challenging profession," he said.
"You spend a lot of time at sea.
But through the mentoring program
you can pick up a lot of tips about life
at sea, your career, your family and
your lifestyle. These are all things that
people before you have dealt with."
