Green Berets practice using the Jetboots Diver device to enhance their underwater range.
Combat divers from the 2nd Battalion, 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne) are training in the vicinity of Key West, Florida. Requalification for scuba diving will occur between April 24, 2022, and May 15, 2022. Combat Diver Qualification Course teaches surface and subsurface watercraft infiltration techniques to Green Berets.
To be validated, a diving team must complete six closed-circuit dives using a rebreather, one open-circuits search dive, and a 15-nautical-mile inflatable boat move. “Open water training is conducted at requalification sites,” said the team sergeant. Training in a unique ecology alive and breathing is far more helpful.
