Special Operations Training & Education Centre is Special Operations Command’s ‘Schoolhouse’.

Special Operations Training & Education Centre (SOTEC) is responsible for the recruitment, selection, training, education and trade management of all Special Operations Command (SOCOMD) personnel.

Based at Holsworthy Barracks in Sydney, SOTEC personnel oversee the conduct of training and education courses across Australia.


SOTEC was established on 1 September 2017, when it transitioned from the Special Forces Training Centre in order to enable professional mastery across all elements of SOCOMD.
