Who This Course Is For

The Contractors on Defence Operations (CONDO) course is required for civilian contractors working on defence operations or intending to do so. It is designed to provide them with the necessary knowledge and skills to understand and comply with the specific operational and security requirements of working in a military operational environment.

The Importance of CONDO Training

CONDO training is essential for civilian contractors working within military headquarters like PJHQ. Here are a few reasons why CONDO training is significant:

Operational Understanding

CONDO training helps contractors gain a better understanding of the military's operating environment, including its structures, procedures, and protocols. This knowledge enables contractors to work more efficiently and effectively in the military operational environment.

Security Awareness

CONDO training emphasises the importance of security measures and risk management. It educates contractors about potential threats, security procedures, and how to protect sensitive information or assets. By promoting security awareness, CONDO training helps protect contractors.

Compliance and Adherence

The military operates under strict regulations and guidelines to ensure operational effectiveness and safety. CONDO training ensures that civilian contractors know these regulations and understand their responsibilities to adhere to them.

Integration and Collaboration

CONDO training encourages contractors to integrate and collaborate effectively with military personnel. It fosters an understanding military culture, terminology, and values, facilitating smoother communication and teamwork between contractors and military staff.

Risk Mitigation

The military aims to mitigate risks associated with contractor involvement by training them in CONDO. Contractors well-versed in CONDO can identify potential hazards, report concerns, and take appropriate actions to prevent or address them. This ultimately enhances overall mission success and safety.

Overall, CONDO training is crucial for civilian contractors to operate efficiently, understand the military environment, comply with regulations, and contribute to the success of military operations. It helps create a cohesive and secure working environment for all parties involved.
