TECOM is charged by the Commandant of the Marine Corps with the development, coordination, resourcing, execution, and evaluation of training and education concepts, policies, plans, and programs to ensure Marines are prepared to meet the challenges of present and future operational environments.
TECOM executes against six core competencies:
-Transform civilians to Marines, imbued with our Warrior ethos and reflecting the Marine Corps ethics and core values.
-Provide Marines with the initial skills of their assigned Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) to allow them to function in the Operating Forces.
-Provide progressive education and training that will allow Marines to assume increasing responsibilities, and increase their decision making abilities.
-Enable home station training to ensure the Operating Forces are able to function as MAGTFs in joint environments.
-Develop and execute Service-level training programs and assessments that support the readiness of MAGTFs to deploy in support of missions across the ROMO.
-Identify and establish training in those common skills that are integral to all Marines, regardless of rank or MOS, and ensure that “Every Marine is a rifleman”.
