SERE-C required for active duty CA?

I'm a current reserve 38B strongly considering putting a packet together for the 95th at Bragg. Might be a dumb question considering that part of the pre-req is a SERE-C phys, but are all phases of SERE required for active duty CA?

You're a Reserve 38B and you can't figure out a way to find that info?

The phases for SERE are not like Ranger School or the Q course. Different phases for different students. Level C is for high risk personnel.

Our world is obviously very different than the active 38's. And it's a total cluster f*ck trying to get that information on the reserve side apparently. Have done plenty of research, checked forums, and even called the SORB. Info's always shady, figured someone could just lay it out on here. Go or no-go on the help, don't care for the ball busting.

If you considered my question ball-busting, you are mistaken. I don't fucking know you, so I am not going to bust your balls. Welcome to SOCNET.

You walk into our house asking for a favor and then you want to tell us what to wear when we do that favor? Your balls have not come close to being busted, although I have a feeling.......

Come on gents, he is the new guy on the forum, we have all been there.

At least he is posting in the proper section under CA/PSYOP.

He will survive... Coaching, teaching, and mentoring comes in many forms. Most of which does not include just giving a direct answer.

Just tell your 1SG that you really don't care for ball busting. He will probably let you off the hook with the whole scary SERE-C thing.

WAIVER AUTHORITY FOR ALL SERE PHYSICAL AND CIVIL AFFAIRS TRAINING IS THE COMMANDANT, U.S. ARMY JOHN F. KENNEDY SPECIAL WARFARE CENTER AND SCHOOL (USAJFKSWCS). ON AN AS AVAILABLE BASIS, SOLDIERS WILL ATTEND AND SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETE THE SERE LEVEL C (HIGH RISK) COURSE.

meaning that any other SERE course that you probably haven't attended is irrelevant to the CA course anyway.

All soldiers under USASOC are considered "high risk". SF, Rangers, PSYOP, & CA…etc etc and no, actually its all the same course no matter which branch you're coming from.

So, TFG has no idea what he is writing about, is that it? You should probably refer to all soldiers in USASOC as Operators, while you are at it.
