Jaeger or Frogman selection: Which one is the hardest? The question has been asked a hundred times, and I have given the same answer again and again. “I don’t know.” It seems very fair to give that answer, however, as I am the only one who has completed both selection courses, I should know, right? For some reason, everybody else seems to have an opinion on the subject. I believe this has become a topic of interest outside Denmark, too.

“The Frogman selection is toughest, they spend all the time in cold, dark water. The course has rougher handling of students and is way longer.”

“No way, the Jaeger selection is way more intense. It has higher demands and pushes you further by way of harsh marches.”

The truth is that both statements are right; however, what remains unanswered is why you can’t compare them to each other.
