Individual Training Course (ITC)

Marines who successfully complete MARSOC assessment and selection go through a 7-month course comprised of four phases. These phases are basic skills, small unit tactics, close quarter battle, and irregular warfare. This Individual Training Course culminates with "Operation Derna Bridge" which requires the students to utilize all the skills learned in ITC. After graduation the Marines are designated Critical Skills Operators and Special Operations Officers.
