The dates for 2022 CPO / FPS courses + recruiting events are set. We will run 4 squads in total, max. 8 trainees each, two units in Odesa, Ukraine: beautiful location at the best spot of the black sea, famous for its clean warm ocean, cocktails, wonderful people, beach parties. The other two units will run in Florida, USA: World famous summertime hotspot. We chose these dates and locations due to multiple requests by trainees and partners to move the courses from April to the summer vacation season and to beach paradise locations. Because most of you guys will use your holidays you've planned for recreational travel so that way you can stay a few days longer after you've passed the meat grinder and relax at a beautiful beach.
