Your Special Forces is an online platform that came about through collaboration between the Korps Commando Troepen (KCT) and the University of Groningen (RUG). The KCT felt the need to safely collect and analyse research data from (candidate) operators in order to improve the selection and development of its operators.
The Dutch Special Forces is the special unit of the Royal Dutch Army whose task is to prepare and execute Special Operations as part of allied defence and crisis management tasks. The KCT is ready for operational deployment 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, anywhere in the world. The challenge within this project was how to safely collect and analyse research data on candidates in order to improve selection and development.
Researchable has made a first implementation of a platform for conducting mental tests and questionnaires for potential new operators. The developed platform allows participants to participate in different surveys and to share the results of these surveys with the coordinators of the intake sessions. For the KCT, it is now possible to do early assessments on new candidates.
