From looking at the service record that has been made public it appears that he failed out of flight training, then went into the reserves as an intel officer. The units he were in were riverine groups not special boat units. My guess is that he never attended SERE.

You are more than likely correct.
The Riverines have their own training facility at Camp Lejuene, which is probably much less than SEALs but along the lines of ‘light’ Spec Forces training. (my opinion, based on what MRF people were doing during NAM.
When do the Pensacola selectees go through SERE training? (If they still do)?
I do know that back during NAM the people from my ship going to RIVRON’s etc had to go back to the States for SERE training prior going to VN....(we were home ported in Yoko)
