AUSTRALIAN DEFENCE FORCE ENGLISH LANGUAGE PROFILING SYSTEM (ADFELPS)

Who administers tests?

Within Australia, testing is done at the Defence International Training Centre (DITC). In other countries testing is carried out by Australian Language Advisers (ALAs), Maritime Surveillance Advisers (MSAs), Australian embassy personnel and trained personnel from regional defence forces.
