Where does the military pay come from?

Federal Army

The military academy is the training center for officers.

The Austrian Armed Forces offer every soldier the opportunity to pursue a career as a professional officer. Interested parties first complete the cadre training. For the best, the three-year military officer training begins at the Theresian Military Academy in Wiener Neustadt.

Three training phases

The first section - the Executive candidate training part 1 - is completed together with everyone who wants to become an officer or non-commissioned officer. The cadre candidate training part 1 begins in September and lasts five months. It is carried out by various units of the Federal Army across Austria. In Part 1 of the cadre candidate training, the basics of "being a soldier" are taught. By transferring simple management tasks, the participants are also introduced to the role of the commander.

In the second section - the Executive candidate training part 2 - Those who are striving for a career as a professional officer are brought together and trained together at the Jäger Institute in Bruckneudorf. The cadre candidate training part 2 lasts seven months. Not only does the training to become a commander of a hunter group take place, but physical and psychological performance is also increased.

The third section - the military officer training - takes place at the Theresian Military Academy in Wiener Neustadt and the respective branches of the armed forces and technical schools.
