He received the certificate during a ceremony at the Philippine Army's Special Forces Regiment (Airborne) Headquarters in Ben Fe Village, Fort Ramon Magsaysay, Palayan City, Nueva Ecija on January 17, 2022.

The Special Forces Regiment (Airborne) is an elite Philippine Army unit established in the 1960s by Fidel V. Ramos (first Commanding officer of the Special Forces), primarily trained in both Unconventional Warfare Operations and Psychological Warfare Operations. The unit is based on and continually trains with its American counterpart, the U.S. Army Special Forces (Green Berets).

Like the Scout Rangers, members of the Special Forces Regiment of the Philippine Army are also highly trained in counter-insurgency operations.

Upon assignment to the Special Forces, soldiers are made to undergo the Basic Airborne Course. They, later on, undergo the Special Forces Operations Course - an eight-month course that equips each SF soldier in the basics of Special Forces and unconventional warfare operations. 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.
