Basic S.E.R.E. Rural Operations
Survival Training Course
88 Tactical's SERE 1, "Rural Ops"
Survive. Endure. Respond. Excel. SERE is 88 Tactical’s flagship survival course designed to build self-confidence and team camaraderie. The training combines portions of all of 88 Tactical’s Reality-Behavior-Based Conditioning® courses to give students the skills to overcome real-world challenges while participating in a weekend-long training experience.
No two SERE classes are ever the same. The changing seasons, weather, current events, and group dynamics all have an influence on the outcome of the course. For this reason, the specifics are only revealed as the weekend unfolds. This strategy has proven to add extra value to the training experience.
To give you an idea of what the weekend holds, we can tell you that SERE Rural Operations will include lessons on evasion, survival skills and preparedness, firecraft, shelters, food and water foraging, medical care, combatives, mission planning and room clearing. Rifle (AR-15) handling and live-fire training are also included.
