Have you ever wondered how Army special operations forces personnel become so highly capable in the many and varied missions they conduct around the world? An informative and interesting video provides an explanation of the advanced training ARSOF soldiers receive.
Certainly, the arduous and highly-refined selection process is important to ensure the right individual is accessed into the Army’s Special Forces, Civil Affairs, PSYOP, and ARSOF intelligence and support units. In addition, respective initial qualification courses provide a baseline of instruction to prepare the soldiers for their assignments. However, much of the expertise is attained through attendance at the advanced training courses available at the Army’s school for special warfare after the soldier is assigned to his unit.
The 6th Battalion of the United States Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School (USAJFKSWCS) conducts over 16 advanced and specialized courses. These courses prepare ARSOF, JSOC, and interagency personnel for a wide range of missions and operations all over the world. The courses range from conventional and unconventional intelligence collection, irregular warfare analytics, biometric and forensic collection techniques, surveillance, and cyber technology.
USAJFKSWCS has released an eight minute video detailing these advanced courses. The short film details the courses conducted by the three companies of the 6th Battalion. If you have an interest in some of the special operations training conducted at Fort Bragg, North Carolina then this video is worth watching.
