Minister for Defence David Johnston has announced the award of more than $10.5 million in grants to more than 120 companies under the most recent round of the Skilling Australia’s Defence Industry (SADI) program.

Senator Johnston said the funding would provide more than 1000 individual training opportunities to support Australia’s defence industry in improving the quality and quantity of skills within its workforce.
 
“The Government’s responsibility for national security extends to providing targeted funding for measures to ensure a highly skilled defence industry that is responsive to the requirements of our Australian Defence Force,” Senator Johnston said.

“From the well-known major defence prime contractors to many small to medium enterprises, the companies that have been successful in this round will be funded to supervise apprentices and train existing employees.”
 
SADI grants fund a wide range of activities including short-courses, up-skilling in the use of specialist equipment, postgraduate and undergraduate courses, and certificate or diploma level training.
 
In this, its ninth year, the SADI program continues to attract a broad range of applications for training activities covering project management, engineering, logistics and technical trades.
