Personal History Jäger was born August 18, 2349, the first child of Klause and Brigitte Adler. For the first five years of his life, he enjoyed being the only child until his younger brother Ludwig was born. As with every newborn, his parents seemed to pay more attention to Ludwig than they did to him and he began to push himself harder and harder to regain what he felt he had lost. It wasn't until he was ten that his parents learned why he pushed himself to the point of hurting himself, and they were chagrined and began to treat him and his brother as equals.

His brother, however, did not appreciate the new status between the two and began to seek ways to sabotage Jäger every chance he got, which created a new rift between them. Before their parents could intervene once more, tragedy struck the family when their father, Klause, was killed in a shuttle accident. That served to unite the brothers, but neither of them could bring back what they had lost.

At the age of sixteen, Jäger decided that he would join Starfleet and specialize in Security Search and Rescue with a side major in Investigations which would aid his main area of specialization. For two years, with the permission of his mother, he studied everything there was to know about the subjects with a passion until he was able to take and pass the Starfleet entrance exam one day after his eighteenth birthday.
Service Record 2367 - 2372 Starfleet Academy, San Francisco, Earth. Scored 1580 out of 1600 on entrance exam. Specialized in Security SAR and Security.

Search and Rescue Preparatory Course (2 weeks) - Located in San Antonio, Texas on the former site of Lackland Air Force Base, this course provides physical training under the oversight of sports physiologists and swimming trainers to familiarize and teach the trainees the required skills to succeed in the Indoctrination Course.

SAR Indoctrination Course or 'Indoc' (10 weeks) - Also located in San Antonio. At this school, participants undergo extensive physical conditioning with swimming, running, weight training and calisthenics. This course helps prepare students for the rigors of training and the demands of Search and Rescue. Other training includes physiological, obstacle courses, rucksack marches, diving physics, dive tables, metric manipulations, medical terminology, dive terminology, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, weapons qualifications, history of Search and Rescue, and the leadership reaction course. Graduation of this course is the "ticket to ride the pipeline" and begin learning the special skills that make Search and Rescue Operatives very highly regarded.

Combat Water Survival Course (six weeks) - Located in Key West, Florida. The course is divided into four blocks of instruction: (1) Diving Theory, (2) Infiltration/Exfiltration Methods, (3) Open Circuit Diving Operations, and (4) Closed Circuit Diving Operations. The primary focus of CWSC is to develop total comfort in aquatic environments. Primarily it is to prepare candidates for zero-gravity training for the aerospace operations phases of training. A typical day at this school would start with a morning run at 0530 and swimming three to eight thousand meters, followed by what can be described as near drowning experiences. Buddy breathing with a snorkel under constant harassment by instructors(called 'Sharking') and the 'Object Retrievals' (retrieving items such as phaser rifles, equipment canisters, weights, etc) follows shortly thereafter. The object is to create calm where terror of drowning once existed. This phase is responsible for almost half the attrition of a class, although the Indoctrination course is responsible for the majority of drops.

Aerospace Insertion Training (three weeks) - Located in Cape Canaveral, Florida. Students learn every method of inserting onto the surface of a planet ranging from shuttlecraft landings to orbital skydiving.

Zero Gravity and Spaceborne Operations (five weeks) - Located at Earth Spacedock, this course teaches basic operations in Zero G and starship environments.

Starfleet Basic Survival School (two and a half weeks) - Located in various locations throughout Earth, ranging from the Brecon Beacons of the British Isles to the wilderness of Alaska on the North American continent. This course teaches basic survival techniques for remote areas using minimal equipment. This includes instruction of principles, procedures, equipment and techniques that help individuals to survive, regardless of climatic conditions or unfriendly environments, and return home.

Search and Rescue EMT Training (twenty two weeks) - Located in Bindoon, Australia. This course teaches how to manage trauma patients prior to evacuation and provide emergency medical treatment. Phase I is five weeks of emergency medical technician basic (EMT-B) training. Phase II lasts 17 weeks and provides instruction in minor field surgery, pharmacology, combat trauma management, advanced airway management and military evacuation procedures. Field Exercies are typically executed on the terrain of the Australian Outback. Graduates of this course are awarded their Level II Emergency Medical Certifications.

Search and Rescue Specialist Course - Also located in Bindoon, with training exercises taking place on other locations on Earth to simulate various terrains for Class M planets, this course qualifies Starfleet personnel of all ranks as SAR Operatives for assignment to any SAR unit in Federation space. Training includes field medical care and tactics, mountaineering, combat tactics, transporter operations, and starship operations. It is here that candidates are assigned their respective squadrons and learn which flight they are to be assigned.
