Abstract:

This study analyses Marine Corps training from a total systems approach to determine how it can be made more effective and efficient with the ultimate goal of improved combat readiness. Six major categories or types of training are considered. These are individual, unit, officer, enlisted, ground, and aviation training. The study develops a symbolic model of the Marine Corps training system. The model, which is basically descriptive and nonquantitative, serves as an outline for the study report and is used to focus the analysis on those elements of the training system where improvements can be made. The study report also includes a historical synopsis of the training of enlisted Marines from 1946 to 1977.
