Military Special Operations Training for Selection

Military Special Operations Training for Selection

In the problem solving process, all efforts are nebulous until one determines the specific nature of the problem itself. The problem of military special operations selection is a multi-dimensional one. All selection courses, foreign and domestic to the US, consist of a variety of psychological, technical, tactical, and physical challenges and all of these components of preparation are interrelated and mutually dependent.

In the spirit of the words of Marcus Aurelius "Of each particular thing, ask what is it in and of itself, what is its nature": Every conceivable element of the selection course in question must be dissected in order to formulate the optimal preparatory strategy that will yield the highest probability of success.
