The course provides a theoretical and practical introduction on the application of Integrated Logistic Support (ILS) throughout the Capability Lifecycle. The course focuses squarely on the Ten ILS elements and identifies the Logistic Support Analysis (LSA) tasks. It also visits the five support system constituent capabilities and details how these elements can assist ILS personnel in their everyday working environment. It provides theory and tailored practical training to enable personnel, wherever located in the ILS chain, with the fundamental knowledge and practical skills that will enable them to work in a collaborative ILS and engineering environment. Throughout the course the experienced instructors will bring to life the theoretical knowledge with real world examples to ensure students can apply the knowledge to their individual workplace. While the course is tailored for the Defence Capability Life Cycle, the facilitators endeavour to relate the material to the wider Australian civil industries.
