Ranger Assessment & Selection Program

Every volunteer for the regiment, from every new recruit to every officer and any senior leader selected to command in the regiment, will go through the Ranger Assessment and Selection Program to assess their ability and provide the basic skills required to be an effective member of the 75th Ranger Regiment.

For new soldiers, RASP is conducted after applicants successfully complete their basic Military Occupational Specialty course and graduate from the Army’s Parachutists Course (Airborne School).  For soldiers, both enlisted and officer, who have successfully completed their first tour of duty, and meet the recruiting qualifications, a RASP date will be scheduled upon application and conditional acceptance to the 75th Ranger Regiment.

Upon completion of RASP, regardless of when in your Army career you attend, you will have demonstrated that you have what it takes to be a U.S. Army Ranger and will be assigned to the 75th Ranger Regiment. 

Ranger First Responder (RFR)

This course is taught to all RASP students and continued upon assignment to ranger battalions.  It teaches critical first aid and advanced combat lifesaver procedures.  Regardless whether a Ranger is a medical professional or not, this advanced medical course gives every ranger the skills necessary to treat and save lives.  Continuing to set the example, this course has become the basis for all Combat Lifesaver Courses taught Army-wide.


This course provides Rangers knowledge of local languages and dialects useful when conducting ranger operations in foreign environments.   Rangers completing this course will have a basic knowledge of dialects useful in areas where the regiment is currently operating.  Students that excel are provided the opportunity while in the regiment to attend additional language training in full-time Army language programs across the United States.


An Army service school, this course teaches the fundamentals of small unit leadership and patrolling.   Ranger School is the most physically and mentally demanding leadership school the Army has to offer.  Not necessarily a qualifier to apply or be assigned to the 75th Ranger Regiment, members of the regiment desiring to be placed in higher positions of responsibility are afforded the opportunity to attend and earn the coveted U.S. Army Ranger Tab – a mark of distinction in the military and civilian community and proof positive of proven leadership under the toughest conditions possible. 

Army and joint service schools

Depending on occupation and job requirements, members of the 75th Ranger Regiment enjoy unparalleled access to countless military schools, including Jumpmaster, Sniper, Pathfinder, Military Freefall, Scuba, Survival-Evasion-Resistance-Escape (SERE), and others.   Additionally, members of the regiment at all levels are afforded unrivalled opportunities for joint training and non-traditional military and civilian schooling.
