TAKE PART IN SPECIALIST OPERATIONS
Training For The Role
1) Hills Prep Course - A course of increasingly challenging drill nights and weekends over a six month period, ending with test week. You must pass this to progress to the next stage
2) Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and Tactics Course - You'll then start another six months of training, over drill nights and weekends. You'll receive instruction and assessment on Special Forces tactics, techniques and procedures, including weapons and SOPs. During this progressive course, you'll learn new skills while under mental and physical pressure. The course culminates in a two-week final exercise.
Soldiers will be trained to an operationally deployable status.
After selection, you'll start a probation period, where you'll complete a basic parachute course, a communication course and a SERE (Survive, Evade, Resist and Extract) course. Once you've finished these, you'll be eligible for mobilisation if needed.
You'll continue to receive training and skill development during your time serving in the SAS.
