  • Investing in the Education and Training of our Marines

We maintain PME and training programs that prepare Marines for the stress of combat operations and equip them with the skills to meet the challenges of life as a Marine. Our education and training curricula is founded on our core values, strengthens individual resilience, and supports a wide range of operational capabilities. We leverage competencies in entry-level and skills progression training, and emphasizing core competencies in combined arms and amphibious operations. Future training will also center on the MAGTF Training Program (MAGTFTP), which will develop the essential unit capabilities to conduct integrated operations. We are transforming the Marine Corps University (MCU) into a world-class institution and are widening opportunities in career-level schools for our company grade officers. We are likewise increasing junior enlisted and non-commissioned officer resident courses, and addimg more distance education learning opportunities.
