83 men of Class 234 have been accepted into the training program that forms one of the most elite fighting forces in the world. A physically gruelling course is designed to weed out all but the toughest and most dedicated students.
BUD/S is a 6-month SEAL training course held at the Naval Special Warfare Training Centre in Coronado, CA. You’ll start with five weeks Indoctrination and Pre-Training as part of a Navy SEAL Class, then go through the Three Phases of BUD/S.
First Phase is the toughest. It consists of 8 weeks of Basic Conditioning that peaks with a gruelling segment called “Hell Week” at the midway point, where you’ll be tested to your limits.
