After all special force groups finished their formalized training, they would return back to the field for further practical and tactical training with armament, including mobile shooting ranges.

They would start with practicing target detection skills consisting of scanning and picking out hidden targets while also stealthily closing the distance to ensure a first round hit while remaining hidden.
The next day they would practice in depth orienteering skills with both classroom and in the field practical application exercises of pace count, dead reckoning, locating natural and man made features, as well as following a plotted course.

All theoretical and practical classes and exercises would be performed at the facilities of the Kaohsiung Military Academy as well as on the surrounding terrain, which includes forest, open field and urban terrain. This would be done for the commandos to be ready to operate on any given terrain, according to the assigned mission with proficiency.

With the last field practice exercises complete, all units would have completed the Marksmanship L2 course, increasing their shooting capabilities and skills drastically. The unit of Special Operation Command of the Taiwanese Army, Navy and Military Police would know have a clear advantage compared to regular Taiwanese armed forces personnel. Nevertheless, their instruction continues as to further capacitate and to improve the operational skills of these units including the specialization of the different Special Forces Battalions and Companies.

The units would gather at the main square of the Kaohsiung Military Academy for a small ceremony in which they would be awarded with the correspondent course insignia and black berets would be given to these participants. The national anthem would be played.

Afterwards, the Units would return to their barracks, pack their belongings and board the different buses and aircraft that would transport them back to their respective garrisons.
