Currently Serving, and considering options to transition out of the ADF?
The Transition Process begins inside the wire by reporting to the Transition Centre. Everyone must report to the Transition Centre and will be allocated a Transition Coach. The coach will work with you to establish which of the following programs you need access to. Your family is welcome. If you have any doubts or would like to talk to someone outside the wire about this, please feel free to get in touch with us.
This is one of those things you should prepare early for as everyone will transition out sooner or later.
You need a Transition Coach and you need access to these programs depending on your circumstances.
Take note of the table below to see what you are entitled to at various stages of transition.
