This article page provides only a summary of the Marine Corps Training Information Management System (MCTIMS). The official Marine Corps Training Information Management System login page can be found at:
The Marine Corps Training Information Management System (MCTIMS) is our emerging enterprise information system for training development and management. An official program of record with Marine Corps Systems Command oversight, Marine Corps Training Information Management System web-enabled applications work in concert with Oracle databases containing our training information to provide integrated applications that serve all of our Corps’ training development and management needs.
The Marine Corps Training Information Management System is the authoritative data source for all training data, generating, maintaining, sharing, and reporting training data as required by our other service-level systems. Early Marine Corps Training Information Management System developments directly supported the mission of TECOM to provide entry-level trained Marines to the operating forces and supporting establishment. In the near future, units will use the Marine Corps Training Information Management System to develop the units’ training plans, training schedules, and record training achievements.
The Marine Corps Training Information Management System is a government-owned software application that is available for use by the total force. The system standardizes our Corps’ training development and management by aligning to the Systems Approach to Training process.
TRAINING & READINESS (T&R) DEVELOPMENT MODULE
The T&R Development Module is the backbone of the Marine Corps Training Information Management System suite of modules. This module is used during T&R Development and Review Conferences to build or maintain individual and collective events and manage T&R data. The TECOM and EDCOM staff uses this web-based application to capture the individual and collective training standards for an occupational field and MOS to produce the T&R manual. T&R Manuals provide commanders in the Operating Forces, Supporting Establishment, and formal learning centers with a tool for the planning and implementation of progressive training that ultimately ensures individual and collective proficiency.
MILITARY OCCUPATIONAL SPECIALTY (MOS) MANUAL MODULE
The MOS Manual Module supports TECOM’s Ground Training Branch mission to manage the MOS Manual for our Corps. This module provides the capability to store web-based MOS Manual data to expedite the annual review and reduce the labor associated with management of the MOS Manual.
MOS ROADMAP MODULE
Use of this web-based application guides individual Marines on career training and education. Roadmaps are single-source documents containing grade-specific information related to training and education requirements from which Marines can make informed career decisions regarding assignment, training and education requirements, and career progression opportunities. Leaders use the roadmap as an aid to counsel and mentor subordinates.
UNIT TRAINING MANAGEMENT (UTM) AND INDIVIDUAL MARINE MANAGEMENT (IMM) MODULES
The UTM and IMM modules are the latest Marine Corps Training Information Management System development efforts designed to provide direct support to the Operating Force. The UTM module provides commanders with a toolkit that aligns with the UTM process outlined in Marine Corps Reference Publication (MCRP) 3-0A, the UTM Guide. This capability enables commanders and their staff to execute doctrinal UTM practices via an automated system. Other capabilities within this module will allow units to record, track, evaluate, and report all individual and collective-training requirements.
ADDITIONAL MCTIMS DEVELOPMENTS TO SUPPORT THE MARINE CORPS
Two additional Marine Corps Training Information Management System developments fielded during FY11 are the Curriculum Library and the Electronic Training Jacket (ETJ). The Curriculum Library provides Marines in the operating forces access to formal learning center course materials to support training and standardize instructional materials throughout our Corps. Marine operating forces will be able to access lesson plans, student outlines, instructor preparation guides, and media to support unit training requirements. The ETJ provides a cradle-to-grave record of all training accomplishments for all Marines viewable by the individual Marine or their commander.
OTHER FORMAL SCHOOL MANAGEMENT CAPABILITIES
The Curriculum Management (CMD) Module. TECOM staff and schoolhouse curriculum developers use this web-based application to create and manage curriculum for our Corps’ formal schools. The use of this module is mandated for the production of our programs of instruction.
The Student Evaluation (SEV) Module. TECOM staff uses this web-based application to construct tests, record test data, track student scores and grade point averages, and generate reports. The SEV module controls the synchronization of this data with an external application. SEV is also used to create survey questionnaires and track student responses.
The Student Management Module. TECOM staff uses this web-based application to manage rosters, units, and individual students for our formal schools.
Student Registrar. The Student Registrar Module is managed by the Formal School Training Division, TECOM. The TECOM staff uses this web-based application to manage class rosters and student registrations.
