Training Pipeline
As part of ARSOF, the CA Force is moving to implement an Assessment and Selection
course to ensure the readiness of Soldiers in the force to meet the operational
challenges they will face, now and into the future. Soldiers scheduled to attend the
CA Qualification Course for the remainder of FY10 should expect to attend a Pilot
Assessment and Selection Course which will assist the branch’s generating force in
designing the best possible assessment and selection. The Pilot Course is designed to
assess a candidate’s character, courage, commitment and intellect. The course will
provide the candidate valuable feedback to assist in their personal professional
development as they transition from their previous branch to become a member of the CA
Regiment.

This is not Special Forces Assessment and Selection. Nor is this intended to be the
start of your CA training.

We will be testing you on skills and in situations that approximate some of the types
of challenges you may face as a CA operator in the future. You are not being evaluated
your knowledge of CA as it stands right now. You will be evaluated on many of the
skills and character traits you will need to succeed on future missions.

You will be treated as a professional. You will be expected to complete a series of
challenging tasks to complete under various conditions.

You should prepare yourself to do the following:

-Score a minimum of 210 on the APFT with 70 points or higher in each event.

-Run 3-6 miles at a sustained 9 minute/mile pace.

-Demonstrate the skills to lead a small team during periods of mental and physical
stress

-Demonstrate the ability to research and analyze a problem and develop a solution,
both individually and as a member of team.

-Demonstrate the ability to communicate both orally and in writing.
