Each member of the SF

The regiment may opt to undergo specialty courses as well after finishing the Special Forces basic course. These include, but are not limited to, training in demolitions and bomb disposal (EOD), psychological warfare operations (PSYOPS), riverine operations including combat diving, intelligence operations, weapons, medics, as well as VIP security training in preparation for reassignment with the Presidential Security Group.
