Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) Special Forces physical training guide; Joint Special Forces Selection Test
As visitors scouted Singapore Army exhibits at the Army Open House, recruiters for SAF Special Forces eyeballed visitors for a few extraordinary people with the makings of elite soldiers.
The four-week physical training programme you see above is part of a recruitment brochure for SAF Special Forces. It has been suggested for individuals who wish to whip themselves into shape.
Four weeks of training is intended to prepare individuals for the SAF Joint Special Forces Selection Test (JSFST).
"The SAF Special Forces are the Elite Soldiers of the SAF," the brochure said.
"Special Forces troopers are specifically trained to conduct highly complex operations and are capable of operating over land, air and sea. They are extraordinary people who are nurtured to perform exceptional feats of daring. They are ready at a moment's notice to respond to the operational demands of the SAF and the Nation. Being a Special Forces trooper is not for the faint hearted. Special Forces troopers cannot be mass-produced. Quality, not Quantity, is what counts."
Looking at the demanding programme, I reckon I'd barely get by Day 1.
