This engaging three-day program introduces participants to the central issues, threats, challenges and opportunities that underpin Australia’s national security environment. It is specifically designed for professionals wishing to gain deeper knowledge and insight into current and emerging national security issues facing Australia and the region.

Participants will be exposed to insight from experts and thought leaders on the issues of the day, and on potential challenges into the future; and will leave the program with deeper knowledge and an improved ability to conduct critical conversations on national security matters.

The program is designed for people who are new to the national security community, or who would benefit from an introduction to the community, broadly defined. Due to the breadth of the program and the introductory focus, there are benefits for people from all organisations, and from those working in policy, strategic planning, capability development, projects, operations and coordination. There is no minimum security clearance required to attend.

Past presenters for this program include: Professor Rory Medcalf, Dr Fiona McKenzie, CDRE Michele Miller, Mr Allan Behm, Ms Jacinta Carroll and others.

“Thank you for an outstanding course. I have been so impressed by the quality of the course, the calibre of the guest speakers and the professionalism and expertise of NSC staff. It has been a real privilege to attend, and I am looking forward to applying my newly acquired knowledge to my work in the future” — Previous participant
