Aviation Candidate Management Centre (ACMC)


The Aviation Candidate Management Centre (ACMC) is responsible for the Human Resource Management of Officer Aviation (OA) candidates throughout the attraction, selection and training process.


The ACMC is located at RAAF Base East Sale, the home of several Air Force specialist training schools. Because it focuses exclusively on Human Resource Management rather than training, the ACMC refers to personnel as candidates, while the Air Academy refers to the same personnel as students.


The Centre works in partnership with Defence Force Recruiting, the Air Academy and the air arms of the Navy and Army.


Aside from the core role of managing Air Force OA candidates, the ACMC also coordinates the Aviation Screening Program which is part of the Officer Aviation Selection Process, and the Aviation Motivation Program which is designed to promote aviation.
