Exercise Boss Lift 2017


Exercise Boss Lift 2017 (1.24 mins)

Nineteen executives and small business owners from across the ACT, NSW and southern Queensland were loaded into the back of a C17 Globemaster III and dropped onto Malaysia’s Butterworth Air Force Base on Monday 9 January as part of Exercise Boss Lift 2017 to experience the training their civilian employees undertake in the Army Reserve. Currently over 100 Australian Army Reserve soldiers are in Malaysia for three months of intensive training and activities supporting Australian Defence engagement in South East Asia. Their civilian employers range from real estate agents and tradesmen to senior public servants. Exercise Boss Lift participants will gain a deeper understanding of the training, skills and capabilities that Reservists can bring back to the civilian workforce. Recognising the contribution that civilian employers make, in releasing employees for training and operational service, is crucial in the Reserve’s ability to deliver relevant capability to Defence.
