Marine Corps Training Information Management System

Last Revised: April 25, 2017, 10:26 am

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: 


MCTIMS is an automated, Common-Access-Card enabled, web-based system comprised of 16 integrated modules that support individual and unit training requirements that include Training Standards, Training Development, Curriculum Management, Training Delivery, Training Management, Training Tracking and Record of Training Completions for schools within Training and Education Commands.    MCTIMS also supports end users throughout the Marine Corps by recording training for individual Marines and Units against training standards identified in the Training & Readiness Manuals, Military Occupation Specialty Manual and Formal School Program of Instruction. MCTIMS supports 57 formal learning centers and training detachments and has interfaces with 16 Marine Corps systems, Navy, Army, Air Force and other DoD service components to provide capabilities for all formal school management functions.  Additionally, MCTIMS provides objective training data to inform readiness assessments for units and individual Marines executing doctrinal Unit Training Management processes throughout the total force.   The MCTIMS application is currently hosted (since 27 May 2014), in the Marine Corps Enterprise Information Technolgy Services (MCEITS) Data Center located in Kansas City, MO.

Operational Impact: 

MCTIMS interfaces with the Defense Readiness Reporting System-Marine Corps (DRRS-MC), the Marine-Sierra Hotel Aviation Readiness Program, the Pre-deployment Training Program (PTP) Toolkit and the Marine Corps Total Force System (MCTFS).  Additionally, the following capabilities outline the requirements enabling MCTIMS to provide full spectrum training support for the Marine Corps:  (1) Scheduler, (2) Hand Held application, (3) Splash Page, (4) Qualification and Credentialing tracking, (5) Training Templates, (6) Program of Instruction (POI) of the future. MCTIMS interfaces with the Training and Education Command Training Data Warehouse (TDW), Data Housing and Reporting Tool, Center for Irregular Warfare Skills Tracker, Medical Readiness Reporting System (MRRS), Transportation Capacity Planning Tool (TCTP), Global Combat Support System-Marine Corps (GCSS-MC), Information Assurance Workforce Tracker and Integrated Intelligence Learning Management Capability.  Many of these new requirements are mandated by higher Headquarters or Department of Defense directives such as MCO 1553.2B and MCO 1553.3B  and MCO 3000.13E Readiness SOP.   The MCTIMS Problem Statement signed on 25 October 2013, was approved by the under Secretary of the Navy IRB Chairman on 01 May 2014. MCTIMS technical maturity is capable of supporting all of the listed requirements.  However; it may be limited by the development of other systems within the readiness reporting architecture.​

Program Milestone Status: 

The MCTIMS system has been in service and operational in the Marine Corps since 2005.   The system is hosted in the MCEITS Data Center, Kansas City, MO.   As of this writing (2QFY15), the system has over 75,000 registered users. The goal is to have all Marine users registered by the end of 2017.
