The Navy SEAL training in the Olympic Mountains of Alaska will begin with a clicker, and the training will be run by two clickers, according to Navy officials.
The clicker training was originally planned for May 10, but Navy officials said they will start running it now.
The drill will be led by the SEALs’ Chief Petty Officer William O’Reilly and will last for six hours.
The SEALs are wearing their SEAL vest and helmet.
The drill will last 10 minutes per drill.
The Navy has been running the training since late April and it was the first of its kind in the Pacific.
The Naval Special Warfare Development Group, which includes SEAL teams, will run the drill with the help of a third team of instructors.
“The SEALs have always been able to train using the clicker for a long time, but now they will be able to use a click, and that’s very exciting,” said Capt. Ryan Davis, a spokesman for the Naval Special Operations Command.
“We’re looking forward to getting it started and seeing what this can teach us in the coming months.”
Davis said the drill was not a drill for military special operations personnel, but rather a drill that can be done for the public.
“This is not something we’re going to do for anybody,” he said.
