Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape (SERE)

This course is developed by ACK3 to equip individuals with the skills needed to survive in hostile environments, evade capture, resist enemy exploitation, and safely escape if captured. Training encompasses wilderness survival techniques, evasion tactics, resistance to interrogation, and escape planning.

What is SERE?

Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape (SERE) is an advanced training program designed for individuals who may find themselves in situations where they are isolated, behind enemy lines, or in territories with adversarial control. It is especially pertinent for military personnel, pilots, special forces, and certain government agency staff who are at high risk of capture or detention during their duties.
