In the selection procedure, the groups of astronauts will be tested for short duration tests, for example 2-7 days. This will probably take place in the recording studio.
The ten groups that are finally selected to train to go to Mars will be trained and tested once per two years, for a period of about three months. With ten groups that are training, Mars One will need two of these analog outposts which will be manned permanently. This will probably take place in a place that is easy to reach, for example in Iceland.
Final preparations of the group that was selected to go to Mars and the first and second backup crew will probably take place in a place that is as much as possible like Mars, like the dry regions of Antarctica.
Mars One will make sure that legal issues for the astronauts are taken care of.
