Feedback on NCO Courses in General




GT scores for all 06XX MOSs should be reviewed

Action:

This also applies to EL Scores and is not limited to just NCO
courses. This is a school
wide issue requiring review of all pre
-
requisites. This has been identified to PMTRASYS as a
required action item.




When a communicator reaches the NCO level, incorporate other MOS ITS’ into each
field.

Action:

The common cor
e skills required for all 06XX MOSs have been captured in 0600
Individual Training Standards. Most of these tasks are identified as Managed On The Job
Training. Students attending a Formal Learning Center (FLC) course of instruction will be given
Lesson
Purpose classes to build better understanding of the entire communication architecture
and how different communication disciplines are integrated.




06XX NCO courses should be made available at MEF/WING/DIVISION/ level rather
than at MCCES

Action:
Initial
delivery of 0651NCO and 0656NCO courses will be given at MCCES because of
equipment requirements and the duration of these courses. Delivery of these courses via a Mobile
Training Team or at a Regional Training Center in the future can be revisited once t
hese courses
are implemented and a cost benefit analysis occurs. Delivery of the 0612NCO and 0621NCO
courses are planned to be given at the Regional Training Center aboard each of the three MEFs.
Delivery of the 0614NCO, 0622NCO, and 0623NCO courses are
planned to be given via a
Mobile Training Team hosted and supported by specific MEF units.




Include MIMMS/Embark instruction in the 06XX NCO Courses

Action:
Skill sets for both subjects are identified in 0600 ITSs for all MOSs to be taught via
MOJT. Stud
ents will also be required to complete self
-
paced texts on both skill sets during the
NCO courses of instruction.




Include instruction on multiplexing for all 06XX NCO courses

Action:
Lesson Purpose classes will be taught in all 06XX NCO courses on the pu
rpose/concepts
of multiplexing and the various multiplexers employed throughout the Marine Corps. NCOs will
know how specific systems interface and will obtain an understanding of communication
architectures from the Tactical Communications Systems, Multi
plexing, and Planning Classes.
Actual system integration and planning is a Chief level task.




Include instruction on generators and RF dangers

Action:
Instruction on generator operations has not been communicated from the Operating
Forces to Training Com
mand as a required skill set for the 06XX NCO. Skill sets for both
equipment power requirements and equipment safety are identified in 0600 ITSs for all MOSs to
be taught via MOJT.




Offer 06XX NCO training to Marines serving in independent duty

Action:
I
nstruction will be made available to NCOs at each of the MEFs and MCCES. The
target population for the 06XX NCO courses is a

Corporal or Sergeant with a minimum of two

years experience, on a second enlistment or nearing the end of their first enlistment w
ith CMC re
-
enlistment approval. The Corporal or Sergeant should have two years active service remaining
upon completion of the course.




Include instruction on presentation and planning tools such as Microsoft Visio and
Microsoft PowerPoint

Action:

Specif
ic application training is not provided at MCCES. Presentation and automated
planning software will be made available to 06XX NCOs and 06XX SNCOs for lab assignments.
The skill sets on using specific application software are obtained via MOJT in the perf
ormance of
applicable ITSs. Skill sets are also obtained through local unit training. The 06XX Chief level
courses require students to build network plans and present concepts of communication support.
The 06XX NCO courses will focus on preparing NCOs i
n assisting the respective Chief in the
development of radio/wire/data communications plans.




Course Content Review Board (CCRB) for 06XX NCO Courses

Action:
CCRBs for all 06XX NCO courses will be scheduled and conducted after adequate
feedback can be col
lected from initial implementation of pilot classes.




Entry level courses need significant improvements not reduction of training

Action:
The 06XX NCO courses will not replace or duplicate skill sets taught at the Entry level
or Chief level. The intent o
f NCO instruction is to provide “just in time” training of skills sets
required at the proper interval within the 06XX training continuum. Courseware for entry level,
NCO, and Chief level courses is being designed to provide Marines with the right skill s
ets at the
right time in their respective careers.




Capture NCO tasks separate from Entry Level tasks

Action:

Entry level and NCO tasks will still be listed under a respective MOS with associated
rank requirements identified for each specific ITS. Requir
ed ranks for specific ITSs will either be
for PVT
-
LCpl or Cpl
-
Sgt. The ITS standards and associated Rank requirements will capture all
1000
-
2000 level tasks in a Training & Readiness Manual for the entire 06XX community.




Create interesting/captivating we
b based educational tools for the NCO to train beyond
or prior to a Course

Action:
A TECOM sponsored Road Map is being developed to identify applicable training for
specific MOSs. Development of CBTs/web based courses is also being coordinated through
Di
stance Learning.
