CAOCL offers a range of contracted Language, Regional Expertise, and Culture (LREC) training and operational support services to both the FMF and the supporting establishment. Units desiring assistance in understanding LREC capabilities, determining LREC training requirements, and finding suitable sourcing solutions should contact their local TECOM Training Support Center (TSC) for assistance. Personnel without direct access to a TSC should contact CRSS_Training@usmcu.edu for assistance.

What's my training requirement?

What is my training requirement?

With assistance from the TSCs or CAOCL, units will: determine what LREC capabilities they require, determine which LREC T&R Events (individual or collective) align with those requirements, and determine appropriate training solution.

Marine Corps Tasks Requiring LREC Capability

The the list below contains MCT's that require significant LREC capability and are commonly found as Core, Core Plus, and Assigned Mission Essential Tasks and correlating collective events (per LREC T&R Manual, updated Oct 2017). Units are evaluated on performance of applicable LREC T&R events using an LREC Exercise Culture Assessment (ECA), typically during service level training events (SLTE).

Also, see our Course Catalog for Operational Culture General classes directly associated with individual LREC T&R Events.

How do I schedule training?

After identifying LREC training requirements, units can download and complete a Training Support Request (TSR) and then email them directly to CAOCL Training. Please note that Acrobat Reader DC is recommended for greatest compatibility. 

Effective April 26, 2020: all LREC TSRs will be funded by requesting commands, not centrally funded through TECOM. Please read the CAOCL post-divestment TSR Process guidance prior to submitting TSRs.
