Notes/Caveats:

These figures are single service estimates and are not official statistics produced by Defence Statistics.

The year of commencement may not equate to the year of completion.

LEOC and SCOC are shorter courses ran throughout the year at different intervals.

Figures have been rounded to the nearest 10, except where specified; numbers ending in 5 have been rounded to the nearest multiple of 20 to prevent systematic bias.

“-” denotes zero or rounded to zero
