GORUCK Jedburgh
Two-phased event run by GORUCK Solutions.

Phase 1: Survival skills
Students will be given hands-on classes on wilderness survival. After survival training is complete, students will break into 10 person teams to compete in survival task exercises (shelter making, fire starting, food gathering, scavenging, etc.)
Take-aways: students will have the understanding of how they can apply small unit tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) to their personal and professional lives. Additionally, they will have the ability to 'survive' in a simulated survival scenario.

Phase 2: Alternate Reality Environment missions
Participants working in small teams will apply military mission planning principles to complete various missions based on actual OSS/Jedburgh events from WWII. Participants will negotiate with vetted role-players serving as 'local assets' within the scenario to obtain information or materials that will allow for successful completion of the missions. Participants will be tasked to employ paroles and rapport-building techniques in the simulated stressful situations. The culminating exercise (CULEX) will involve splitting the larger group into smaller elements to conduct a coordinated movement.
