Training and Education Requirements

Overview

Overall force readiness is critical to the Marine Corps Mission. Training involving certain subject matter contained in references (MCBul 1500 ADMIN) is required either by law, the Department of Defense (DoD), the Department of the Navy (DON), or by the Commandant of the Marine Corps (CMC) through Headquarters Marine Corps (HQMC). These training and education events are required for members of the service, regardless of Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) or rank/grade or Component, unless otherwise exempted or waived.

This page contains a comprehensive list of required MCBUL 1500 annual training and education events.  The chart below along with the added web links, are provided to assist individuals in meeting their training and education requirements as well as help units to create efficiencies in training and optimize time available.
