SEAL training has the reputation of being one of the toughest courses anywhere in the world.
The drop out rate for SEAL classes sometimes reaches over 90 percent.
The average Navy SEAL spends over a year in a series of formal training environments.
When they complete this training, they are then awarded the Special Warfare Operator Naval Rating and the Navy Enlisted Classification Combatant Swimmer (SEAL) or, in the case of commissioned naval officers, the designation Naval Special Warfare (SEAL) Officer.
