How long is navy special ops training? And do they get their phones? If so, when?

I have no idea, sorry anon!

Can anybody else answer this question???

Training of a Navy SEAL takes at least a year and a half from boot camp until the time he is ready to go to a SEAL Team. Once at a SEAL Team, he usually has an additional year or more of training prior to his first deployment. Even then, a SEAL’s training is not complete he continues to hone and enhance his skills throughout his career.

I’m not sure about the phone sweetie. I know that seals are very strict so it’s hard to say. I’m guessing he’ll probably get it back after boot camp.

That’s only for Navy SEALs though. Not sure if this anon simply meant for the SEALs, or for any of the special ops ratings. EOD & Diver take a couple of months. AIRR takes about 1.5 years - 2 years. They get their phones, but aren’t necessarily always able to use them. Hope this helped!
