  • Officers and Specialized schools

    Got some information that SEAL Officers cannot attend specialized schools such as Sniper, Breacher, Jump etc. Is this true? I've been in the process to commission into the Navy and if this is true I may rethink my path.

    All SEALs go through jump training. Many courses are restricted to enlisted men, such as breacher. Officers are needed to lead men. In general, officers can't afford to specialize due to their positions of leadership.
