The SS-V addressed the creation of an organic officer corps by creating two officer candidate schools. SS-Brigadeführer Paul Hausser´s school system was designed to provide necessary education to men who demonstrated potential. By 1936, the SS-V was highly selective. For recruits, it only accepted young men who were healthy, in good physical shape, and who had clean police records. Additionally, recruits had to show proof of pure Germanic ancestry back to 1800, while those who became officers had to further demonstrate this to 1750. Officers and men exercised and trained together, breaking down social barriers and creating comrades, with each man prepared to take the place of his superior, should the latter become a casualty. Party membership was not required for joining the SS-V.
