If you meet the initial qualifications for Special Forces you're still a long way from wearing a
The Special Forces Qualifications Course (SFQC) is divided into two parts (24-55 weeks, depending on military occupational specialty[MOS]):
The CMF 18 is subdivided into five accession MOS:
Each SF volunteer will receive extensive training in a specialty that prepares him for his future assignment in an SF unit. SF units are designed to operate either unilaterally or in support of and combined with native military and paramilitary forces. Levels of employment for Special Operations forces include advising adn assisting host governments, involvement in continental United States-based training, and direct participation in combat operations.
The SFQC teaches and develops the skills necessary for effective utilization of the SF soldier. Duties in CMF 18 primarily involve participation in Special Operations interrelated fields of UW. These include foreign internal defence (FID)and direct action missions as part of a small operations team or detachment. Duties at other levels involve command, control, and support functions. Frequently, duties require regional orientation to include foreign language training and in-country experience. SF places emphasis not only on unconventional tactics, but also on knowledge of nations in waterbome, desert, jungle, mountain, or arctic operations.
After successful completion of SFAS, officers who have not already attended their Advance Course will attend either the Infantry or Armor Oficer Advance Course. For the enlisted soldier, the SFQC is currently divided into three phases. The phases are: Individual Skills, MOS Qualification, and Collective Training. The enlisted applicant's SFOC training will be scheduled upon successful completion of SFAS.
During this period, soldiers in-process and are training on common skills for CMF 18 skill level three. Training is 40 days long and is taught at the Camp Rowe Training Facility. The training covered during this phase includes land navigation (cross-country) and small unit tactics. This phase culminates with a special operations overview.
For the enlisted soldier, the decision upon which of the four specialties you will receive training will be made based on your background, aptitude, and desire and the needs of CMF 18. Training for this is 65 days and culminates with the mission planning cycle. During this phase soldiers are trained in their different specialities.
During this 38-day period, soldiers are trained in Special Operations classes, Direct Action Isolation, Air Operations, UW classes, Isolation training, and culminates with the Robin Sage field Training Excercise.
