field work, field practice


Explanation:
...but I am not too sure about your definition of the Swedish term.

When I did military service in Sweden, "fältarbete" meant "field practice/work" and nothing else. Climbing ropes would be categorized as something else - "fysisk träning" or "hinderbana".

I was not a ranger though, so I cannot say what jargon is used in these circles.
