DCSTC has oversight and responsibility for the design, development and delivery of Command Support Training (CST) to Australian Defence Force (ADF) specialists in the disciplines of Information Communications and Telecommunications (ICT), Electronic Warfare (EW), Intelligence, Service Police and Music. In particular, the Defence Force School of Signals (DFSS) provides training for ADF ICT and EW Specialists and also supports developmental training for the Introduction Into Service of new communications capabilities to the ADF.
