GFTS was formed as an International Joint Combat Training Facility for all squads playing ARMA . The 12 week course aims to take some of the burden off squads in training new recruits, by offering a course compiled by currently serving and ex-military personell, many of who served in SF units themselves.

The basis of the course is to train new recruits in the Standard Operating Procedures (SOP’s) of military combat, followed by basic training, weapons phase, bush phase and urban operations. Then, Hell Week (week 12) during which candidates will be subjected to five days of combat exercises alone against Instructors in which their dedication, combat skills and endurance will be tried and tested.

Only the top 50% of those who complete Hell Week will go on to Active Service and be awarded the GFTS beret. The rest will be RTU’d (Returned to Unit). Every action of recruits will be fully documented and reported in an online system that each squad CO can access to view the performance of his recruits. In a nutshell.

The main purpose of GFTS is a selection process – a process to eliminate the not serious from the dependable and dedicated. Candidates must have staying power. Those who fail these 12 weeks, may return to try GFTS selection once only.
