Certificates for successful completion of "Intensive training for servicemen of the Special Forces groups" received today, December 7, soldiers, sergeants and officers who are assigned during the year to the combat units of the formations of the Joint Special Operations Command (JSO).

It was held from November 27 to December 7, 2023 in the area of the Specialized Training and Training Complex "Tsrancha" under the guidance of instructors from the Training Center for Training and Combat Support of SCSO, commanded by Major Petar Vlahov. The purpose of intensive training is to test the abilities of each fighter from the Special Forces groups, his motivation and endurance to all conditions, to work in a team under severe stress and to perform the tasks with great risk.

The newly recruited servicemen crossed over 120 kilometers in a heavily rugged mountainous-wooded area with a displacement of about 4,400 meters, all the while being in complete isolation and with 24-hour constant readiness to perform the tasks. The daily life of the fighters was further aggravated by the fatigue accumulated by lack of sleep and constant physical and mental stress. Of the thirty-six servicemen who started, 70% successfully completed the training.
