The SERE course (Survival, Evasion, Resistance, Escape) prepares individuals for operations in a hostile environment while isolated.

It is designed for both military personnel and civilian employees who may be residing in regions subject to hostilities or threatened by terrorist attacks.

The training is conducted at three levels of advancement: Level A, B, and C. Level A is theoretical training, which is required for all military personnel who may be faced with direct enemy contact. Level B involves several days of challenging conditions, interrupted only by periods of recollection and the expansion of theoretical knowledge. This level is often carried out in a forested, mountainous area with limited food and water rations, where students are asked to complete several challenging tasks. Level C is aimed at instructors.
