The Special Forces Qualification Course could be getting a new look in order to combat hybrid warfare tactics used by Russia and China. One of the well-known aspects is the Robin Sage culmination exercise where the Green Berets participate in a role play. One of the major focuses now in the course will be learning strategies for gaining new allies, especially in Africa and the Indo-Pacific. The Q Course will also take just over 12 months to complete except for those who are medics. Candidates who pass selection will now learn their MOS before beginning the tactical skills phase as well.
