Combat Rescue Officer training

FAIRCHILD AIR FORCE BASE, Wash. – Two Combat Rescue Officer selection program candidates use one airway tube to breathe under water while a program instructor acts as a distraction. CRO candidates undergo six days of mental, physical and psychological training and evaluations to prepare them to lead combat operations as direct combatant commanders. Real-world field operations are simulated as much as possible during the program, and those who finish the program and are selected as CROs are prepared to command ground recovery teams.
