Training & Education Command (TECOM)

United States Marine Corps


Mission Statement (New as of Aug 28, 2020)

TECOM leads the Marine Corps Training and Education continuum from individual entry-level training, professional military education and continuous professional development, through unit, collective, and service-level training in order to produce warfighters and enhance warfighting organizations that enable the FMF to build and sustain the combat readiness required to fight and win today and in the future.

Command Priorities

1)  Vision & Strategy, Campaign Plan, and Assessment Framework execution.

2)  Operationalizing the Battle Rhythm.

3)  HQ Reorganization efforts.

Commanders Guidance

  • TECOM will focus on active, student-centered learning, using an information age approach to training and education.  This approach will use a problem posing methodology where our students/trainees are challenged with problems that they tackle as groups in order to learn by doing, and also from each other.
  • TECOM will move towards the information age and exploit the "intellectual edge" vice the "technological edge." This will be done by developing highly professional forces that can orientate, contextualize, plan, decide and successfully act faster than a changing environment or enemy.
  • TECOM will focus on our products: a well-trained and educated Marine, well-trained and ready units, and feedback about our product.
  • TECOM will contribute to a maneuver warfare culture that renders intent and then enables a mature, intelligent, quick thinking subordinate leader to execute that intent.

Core Competencies

  • Transform civilians into Marines, imbued with our warrior ethos and reflecting Marine Corps’ ethics and core values.
  • Provide every Marine the core skills of their assigned MOS to enable them to function in the Operating Forces.
  • Provide Marines education that improves their decision making and allows them to assume increased responsibility.
  • Develop, coordinate, execute, and maintain a Service-level MAGTF training and assessment program.
  • Provide home-station training enablers to ensure Operating Forces can function as MAGTFs in joint environments.
