Saudi Arabia wants some of their military to go through a training similar to Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL. BUDS is an intense training that all Navy SEALS have to go through in order to be considered a frogman. Former Navy SEALS are being contracted by Saudi Arabia to train their military in some of the same aspects as BUDS. Current requirements for employment include 20-plus years of Naval Special Warfare experience, and have been retired less than 5 years. They are also requiring them to be a Tier One operator.
