Parents & School Career Adviser



PATS can fully prepare young adults for all aspects of the YOU Session test and Pilot Specific test (RAAF Pilot selection test). We’re experts in preparing for the Defence Force selection tests – we’ve been running our Defence test prep courses for over 10 years now. Since 2007, the pass rate for our clients sitting the You Session test, ADFA Maths test and Pilot Specific test has been above 98%.

We’re more than happy to talk with parents over the phone to discuss the course options in more detail. Please give us a call on 0457 101 1010457 101 101.


Or, you can organise an appointment to visit our training office in Melbourne’s CBD – Suite 409/365 Little Collins Street. Refer to the map on the Contact Us page for our exact location. Come in – with your child or on your own if you prefer – and we’ll spend an hour with you talking through the options and showing you the facilities and training exercises.


We’re open Monday to Friday 9am-5pm.





We’ve completed many presentations on how to prepare for the ADF selection tests, at high schools and universities across metro Melbourne and county Victoria.


These are general information sessions that focus on the subjects students should be studying to qualify for the ADF, how to join the ADF and how to prepare for the various selection tests.


If you’re interested in arranging for us to run a presentation at your school or university, please contact manager Jonathan Ryan on 0457 101 1010457 101 101, or send an email to
